One Book One Town Event: The Age of Anxiety

Why has there been an explosion in dystopian and apocalyptic entertainment in the past decade? What does that say about our culture? And what are some ways to prepare in real life for the nightmare scenarios our entertainment centers around?

Join Teen Librarian Nicole Scherer and Children’s Librarian Mary Sorhus for a conversation about this cultural age of anxiety. Learn more about the best of these stories in books, film and television. This is a discussion inspired by this year’s One Book One Town selection, the dystopic Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel. The book imagines society after a cataclysmic flu has wiped out most of the world’s population. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion Thursday, March 19, at 7 p.m., in the Memorial Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Registration is requested.
