Saturday, October 29, 2106; 3:00 to 4:00 pm, Byram Schubert Library. Open to all ages. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served. If life as you knew it came to an end tomorrow, what single object would you chose to sustain your most cherished memories? Join us in creating a "pop-up" museum at the Byram Shubert Library to explore the idea of love, beauty and memory in honor of this year's Greenwich Reads Together selection, Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel. Our pop-up museum is inspired by themes that run through the book, a tale that follows a small band of performing artists who attempt to keep their art and humanity alive after civilization is forever altered by a pandemic. You'll arrive at the library at 3:00, add your object to the pop-museum and write a short label explaining the reason for your selection. At 3:30, each participant will share the story behind his or her item. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in conversation about Station Eleven.
