The 2015–16 Common Reading book selection

Station Eleven

What happens when civilization as you know it comes to an abrupt end?

In the 2015 Common Reading selected book, Station Eleven, a pandemic called the Georgia Flu wipes out 99.99% of the human race in a matter of weeks. Twenty years later, a band of knife-wielding musicians and tattooed actors help ragtag communities remember what is important. This riveting story moves back and forth in time, taking us from Toronto to British Columbia, from Los Angeles to Michigan, and from Shakespeare to Star Trek. Learn more about the book, Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel.
