Canadian novelist, Emily St. John Mandel, made waves last year with the release of Station Eleven, a dystopian narrative unlike any other. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews called it “magnetic… an ambitious take on a post-apocalyptic world where some strive to preserve art, culture and kindness.” Station Eleven won science fiction’s prestigious Arthur C. Clarke Award, and was shortlisted for the 2015 National Book Award. It was also nominated for both the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction. St. John Mandel is the author of three previous novels, and her short fiction has been anthologized in a number of high profile collections. She is also a staff writer for online magazine The Millions.
This event is sponsored by the Stillwater Public Library.
