Join the members of our Book Club as we focus on legendary novel War of the Worlds written by Herbert G. Wells which caused a huge buzz during its radio broadcast in the U.S. in 1938.

This “fake newscast”, narrated and directed by Orson Wells, is one of the examples of fake news in history and was meant as a warning not to take every information from the media for granted.The book deals with invasion of Martians on Earth terrorizing humans. Join us to this novel and the need for critical thinking today. 

This program will be in English.
