An Evening with Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven
Tuesday, October 27
7:00 p.m.

This lecture is a discussion of Emily St. John Mandel's bestselling book, Station Eleven—the process of writing it and the research that went into it. The audience will be transported into the pages of Mandel's spellbinding novel as she discusses notes on the end of the world, the history of pandemics, and the impact of the bubonic plague on Shakespeare's life and work.
Following the reading and Q&A, there will be a book signing in the lobby.
