In fall of 2017, Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel’s novel about the collapse of civilization in the aftermath of a global pandemic, was the focus of two community reading programs in Knoxville, Tennessee. With funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the leadership of the Knox County Public Library, Knoxville hosted a Big Read of Station Eleven. Likewise, the University of Tennessee selected Station Eleven as the Life of the Mind reading for first-year students arriving on campus that fall. From the Remains: Reflections on “Station Eleven” gathers creative responses — both written and artistic — that emerged from local study and discussion of the novel.
