-Free Digital Downloads of the New Book will be given to Audience Attending 1984 Showings on April 4th -
Riverdale Avenue Books will give audiences at the Alamo Draft House in Yonkers and Anthology Film Archives in NYC free digital copies of 1984 in the 21st Century as part of a national protest showing of the movie 1984 at 200 theaters. The new anthology features essays on how George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984 still resonates nearly seven decades after it was published. The anthology will be published on April 4th, 2017, the date on which the novel begins in the classic dystopian novel, and will be free online at RiverdaleAveBooks.com.
After the novel 1984 made the #1 spot on Amazon’s best-seller list, Riverdale Avenue Books put out an international call for submissions of essays. Articles in the book include such notable writers as science fiction legend David Brin, Yahoo News columnist Matt Bai, feminist academic Melissa Febos, and 20 others authors, as well as average citizens.
“With the current political climate, it’s no wonder that 1984 is now #1 on the best-seller lists,” said Publisher and Anthology Editor Lori Perkins. “Readers and writers relate to the political zeitgeist in the novel in current events right now. It gives us all something to think about!”
On April 4th, 2017, audiences at the Alamo Draft House in Yonkers and Anthology Film Archives will receive a card with a code for their free book. Fans of 1984 can still receive a digital ebook of 1984 in the 21st Century by entering the code 1984FREE on RiverdaleAveBooks.com on April 4th.
Downloads of the book are available for sale after the release date at RiverdaleAveBooks.com and also at Amazon, Barnes & Nobles Nook, iTunes, Kobo and where digital and print books are sold.
