The Field Memorial Library’s (FML) Perspective on Pandemics

Because Survival is Insufficient: Station 11 and Star Trek Voyager

FML joined with the Belding Library in Ashfield and the Arms Library in Shelburne Falls in a Zoom-based discussion on May 25 at 6:30 of the phrase “Survival is Insufficient,” which has a key meaning in the novel Station Eleven and is drawn from a specific episode of the Star Trek Voyager series.

NEABig Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

In spring 2021, the Field Memorial Library (FML), a member of the Libraries in the Woods (LITW) Collaborative, is participating in the NEA Big Read: Pocumtuck Valley community read of Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel (2014). We are joining 21 other area libraries to encourage reading the novel and then sharing in conversations, events, and other activities that the partners are sponsoring during April and May. This shared reading project is part of a regional NEA Big Read sponsored by Deerfield’s Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association and its partner library, Tilton Library. More than 40 libraries, organizations and businesses in Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden counties are participating in the three-season program. New England Public Media is also both a media sponsor and programming partner for this widespread Western Mass project. Find the full event schedule here. Planned events include a virtual conversation with the author, Emily St. John Mandel, on Tuesday, April 27th at 7 pm. Email to register for this Zoom-based presentation.
Copies of the novel are available to borrow through FML.
