Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel is the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, a child actor grown up, one would-be saviour, and a traveling troupe of performers who roam the Great Lakes on a mission to bring art to any remaining survivors.
Katherine Govier, award winning author, leads a conversation on her book club selection, Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. Through the gentle writing of St. John Mandel and reflection of Govier, you’ll come to see how art allows us to express who we are; who we want to be; what we hope for; and unfortunately there are far too many persecuted for sharing these important truths.
In this month’s book club discussion, you will also meet several individuals who use their creativity to champion human rights. From Chinese artist Ai Weiwei and his provoking exhibits, Zulkiflee Anwar Ulhaque (better known as Zunar) whose cartoons have been deemed ‘detrimental to public order’, to Atena Farghadani whose drawing of politicians as animals has resulted in her imprisonment by the Iranian government.
