'Station Eleven'

Georgetown Book Club's September Selection

A notable event in itself, the death of actor Arthur Leander during a performance of King Lear in Toronto is soon overshadowed by the outbreak of a population decimating pandemic in Emily St. John Mandel's 2014 novel Station Eleven.

Twenty years after the onset of the illness deemed the Georgia Flu, the world remains significantly altered, with survivors left to fend for themselves and make their own meaning. As the novel explores the state of this new world, it focuses on those survivors with connections to Leander, contrasting their current situations with their lives before the pandemic.

Join the Georgetown Book Club as we discuss Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel on Thursday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. Copies are currently available at the Georgetown Neighborhood Library, and everyone is welcome!
