          Fall Book Discussion: After the Fact

          Some events in our lives are so pivotal that once they occur everything changes. The Great Depression, World War II, and 9/11 represent large-scale cultural events while marriage, job loss, and major illness serve as more intimate examples.

          This series is about the changes that happen during and after major traumas. The books in this series take on the topics of war, illness, and murder. Each author depicts the transformations shaped by the main characters due to a variety of stressors. How does each character handle change?

          All discussions will be held at 7:00 PM in the community room.
          Refreshments will be served.

          333 pages

          This fascinating work covers the lives of its characters after a flu pandemic decimates 99% of the world’s population. The novel examines a post-apocalyptic world consisting of “ferals,” starvation, and loneliness through themes of nostalgia, memory, and art. Mandel weaves together this cast of characters with an air of mystery and suspense that propels the reader forward wanting to learn more.

          Discussion Leader: TBA
          233 pages

          Written nearly 30 years ago about his experiences in the Vietnam War, O’Brien’s book still resonates with readers young and old alike. Some critics even refer to this prize-winning work that defies genres as the best book ever written about war. The work served as a catharsis for the author and his memories of Vietnam.
