Book: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Station Eleven book cover

One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, a terrible flu begins to spread and the world as we know it begins to dissolve. Moving back and forth in time–from the actor’s early days as a film star to fifteen years in the future, when a theater troupe known as the Traveling Symphony roams the wasteland of what remains–this suspenseful, elegiac, spellbinding novel charts the strange twists of fate that connect five people: the actor, the man who tried to save him, the actor’s first wife, his oldest friend, and a young actress with the Traveling Symphony, caught in the crosshairs of a dangerous self-proclaimed prophet. Sometimes terrifying, sometimes tender, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it. from MORE

Non-fiction Book Club

Non-fiction book club

Do you enjoy reading non-fiction? Then this is the book club for you.

In most book clubs, the members all read and discuss the same book at a meeting. However, when it comes to non-fiction, it is often difficult to obtain multiple copies of the same book. So, this book club uses a thematic approach instead. Each month the members read a book of their own choice about a theme that the group agreed upon at the previous meeting. Then at the book club meeting, each member talks about their book and what they learned.

In honor of Earth Day, the theme for April is Environmentalism. 

  • Next Meeting: Thursday, April 25th from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
  • Theme: Environmentalism
  • Meeting location: Makerspace Room on the lower level of the library
