September Programs

After the End: One Read Flash Fiction Contest
Regional

In this year’s One Read selection, a famous actor dies of a heart attack on stage during a production of King Lear, and hours later, life as we know it begins to unwind. A flu pandemic eliminates 95% of the population. Twenty years later, the survivors navigate a world without electricity, transportation or medicine. Taking inspiration from “Station Eleven,” we invite you to tell a story about a world’s end in 250 words or less. This world can be small and personal, like one’s family or home, or more literal, like a country or a planet. Give us an ending -- and what comes after. Winning entries and honorable mentions will be published online and the winners will receive book store gift cards. Participants must be age 16 or older and residents of Boone or Callaway Counties. Entries may be submitted online at oneread.dbrl.org or at any library or bookmobile. Full details available online. Entries are due by September 23.
