Emily St. John Mandel’s critically-acclaimed book, Station Eleven, has been chosen for Attleboro’s annual city-wide read. Mandel’s award-winning novel depicts a time of world collapse, while focusing most of its story on the characters’ lives before and after the crisis. Follow along with the characters as they struggle to re-create their world through the arts, literacy, moral codes, love and human interaction.
Help us celebrate by reading Station Eleven, participating in one of our upcoming events, and joining in the conversation about the book. The author, Emily St. John Mandel, will be in Attleboro on Tuesday, September 19th for a public speaking engagement. More details coming soon.
Alternatively, consider reading our companion title for all ages: The Giver by Lois Lowry. A children’s dystopian novel that can be enjoyed by all ages, The Giver won the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
