Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel

Our selection this year is Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel.
This audacious, darkly glittering novel about art, fame, and ambition is set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse. One snowy night, a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve.

We have Station Eleven available in various formats, including eBook and eAudio.
