Welcome

Launched in 2011, orwellsociety.com exists to support and promote the work of the newly established Orwell Society. The society has been set up to create a means by which anyone can become better acquainted with, and share their appreciation for, the life and work of George Orwell. Those joining the society have exclusive access to the discussion forum on this site – and will be invited to the AGM, at which a talk in Orwell’s honour will be given, as well as to other events the society succeeds in organising over the coming months and years. Full details of joining can be found above.
