This year, we transformed our Reading Discussion Series into a Winter Break Read.
Students and faculty gathered at the Humanities House on Thursday, January 18, to discuss Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel.
The novel was as 2014 National Book Award Finalist and is A New York Times Bestseller.
Station Eleven has been described as “[An] ambitious take on a post-apocalyptic world where some strive to preserve art, culture, and kindness . . . Think of Cormac McCarthy seesawing with Joan Didion . . . Mandel spins a satisfying web of coincidence and kismet . . . Magnetic . . . a breakout novel.” —Kirkus
We found the novel to be a perfect fit for the HEC’s 2017-2018 theme, “Humanities and the Future.”
The first ten students to sing up to reading group received a free copy of the novel!
