  2. On the Same Page: "Station Eleven" and Surviving Pandemics - ONLINE

    April 8, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Join us via Zoom.

    Join us as we explore some of the themes in our selected On the Same Page title! In "Station Eleven", Mandel draws on historical pandemics and responses to them to create a distinctive post-apocalyptic vision, in which existential struggle is punctuated – and sustained – by the entertainment provided by a traveling dramatic troupe. In this new world, literature, music, and drama are not luxuries stripped away by the grim imperatives of survival, but rather are central to human society and identity.
