General Book Club-Station Eleven

We will be reading Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven on Tuesday November 15th. This novel defies simple summary as it explores themes of love, survival, fate, and the essence of life through the stories of three individuals caught on either side of the end of the world as we know of it. Our characters are an aging celebrated actor Arthur Leander who dies during a production of King Lear, paparazzo turned EMT Jeevan Chaudhary who watches the plague roll in, and Kirsten Raymonde a traveling actress in world unrecgonizable.A National Book Award Finalist, Station Eleven is a genre-bending compelling read about the need to live after the end of civilization. Books are available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to our potluck and discussion.
