Emily St. John Mandel is the author of four novels, most recently Station Eleven, which was a finalist for a National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award and won the 2015 Arthur C.

The event is free and open to the public.

All Pueblo Reads is a literary program created by the PCCLD to promote literacy and encourage dialogue about a common book across social, cultural, and generational lines. This is the 13th year of the program.

According to Souder Hodge, “The ongoing partnership with PCCLD is just another way CSU-Pueblo remains dedicated to serving southern Colorado and our Pueblo community. Literacy, love of learning, and the creation of an inquisitive, education-minded culture – these are shared goals for both organizations.”

St. John Mandel will give her final presentation on Saturday, October 21 at 11a.m. at the Rawlings Library. The event is free and open to the public. Read more about the program and PCCLD at http://www.pueblolibrary.org/allpuebloreads
