Callaway County Public Library

Join us as we discuss this year's One Read selection, "Station Eleven," by Emily St. John Mandel. Twenty years after a deadly flu outbreak kills most of the world’s population, what survives?

The presentation is inspired by this year's One Read book, "Station Eleven."
