We hope you will join us for a discussion with Taft Faculty Emeritae, Robin Blackburn Osborn and Linda Saarnijoki.

"An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse, Station Eleven tells the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity."

A National Book Award Finalist and a A PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist

“Will change the post-apocalyptic genre; this isn’t a story about survival, it’s a story about living.” —Boston Herald
