Orem Library Book Club: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
September 16 | 7:00pm | Book Discussion Room

In September the Orem Library Book Club will be reading One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970. Published in 1962, the novel describes the daily experience of a man sentenced to ten years in a forced labor camp in Soviet Russia. It is considered a powerful indictment of oppression and dehumanization, as well as a celebration of humanity in the darkest of places.
