Dystopian literature has been very popular lately–we seem to want to read about worlds where everything goes terribly wrong.  The literature features oppression, rebellions, wars, climactic catastrophes, overpopulation, and generally the end of civilization as we know it.  The English department here is offering a class on it (E174) and the library is providing a display of books that fit the definition of the genre on the second floor of McEnery.  Stop by for some thought provoking reading.
