COMING IN APRIL 2018:

"STATION ELEVEN"

Station Eleven book jacket

Get a jump on the annual One Book – One Community celebration — check out the selected title, "Station Eleven."

When a flu pandemic kills off 99 percent of the world's population, a group of rag-tag actors and musicians travels across a desolate country to keep the remnants of art and humanity alive — because "survival is insufficient." But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who threatens the tiny band's existence. The story moves back and forth in time, vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, and finally reveals the strange twist of fate that connects them all.
