Title

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Dr. Marybeth J. MacPhee, Professor of Public Health

Description

“The story follows a troop of Shakespearean actors and symphony musicians in the aftermath of a flu epidemic that wipes out most of humanity. Mandel offers a thoughtful perspective on all the conveniences we take for granted and a glimmer of hope for the human resilience after traumatic events. It’s a surprisingly light read despite the post-apocalyptic context.”
