Rappahannock Reads is our invitation to everyone in the community to read the same book and engage in library events reflecting on the book’s themes.
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.
