Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel was published in 2014 and is a Nation Book Award Finalist. I listed to the audio version of this book and it is well narrated.

The story begins during a production of King Lear, and the lead has a heart attack on stage. What follows is the beginning of a flu epidemic that wipes out 99.9% of the population world wide.

This story follows the what if in this scenario. It also goes back and forth in time and follows the actor who had the heart attack and the role the people close to him play in the new world.

I found this book interesting and was lucky to pick it up at a fill the bag book sale at the library. It cost me one nickle.

A lady at a yard sale donated these books for the NICU babies.

Michelle dropped these books by for the NICU. 

Read to a child today even if that child is you. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
