10/22/2017, 2:00 PM Location: Mendocino College Lake Center, 2565 Parallel Drive, Lakeport, CA 95453Emily St. John Mandel’s award-winning novel, Station Eleven, takes place in a world decimated by disease. A pandemic known as the Georgia Flu has wiped out much of the population; what’s left of humanity struggles to persist amidst the rubble. It doesn’t sound like an uplifting tale. Somehow, though, it is. As Karen Valby states in Entertainment Weekly: “This is not a story of crisis and survival. It's one of art and family and memory and community and the awful courage it takes to look upon the world with fresh and hopeful eyes.” Join novelist, playwright and Mendocino College professor Jody Gehrman in a facilitated discussion about Station Eleven and what it means to our community. Add your thoughts as we explore this beautifully constructed love letter to art, theatre, and our persistent need to create. More Big Read information is on the website www.lakecountybigread.com
