Our May 16, 2023 discussion is on "Station Eleven" by Emily Mandel

About the book: One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear.  Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve. Moving back  and forth in time—from the actor's early days as a film star to fifteen  years in the future, when a theater troupe known as the Traveling  Symphony roams the wasteland of what remains—this suspenseful, elegiac,  spellbinding novel charts the strange twists of fate that connect five  people: the actor, the man who tried to save him, the actor's first  wife, his oldest friend, and a young actress with the Traveling  Symphony, caught in the crosshairs of a dangerous self-proclaimed  prophet.
