Book Discussions of The Last Town on Earth

Please join this scholar facilitated book discussion of The Last Town on Earth by Thomas Mullen at various libraries throughout the Front Range.

The setting of this novel is a small town in the Pacific Northwest during World War I.  In response to fear of the flu epidemic, the citizens of the town impose an absolute quarantine, allowing no one to come into the town and allowing no one who leaves to return.  The backfrop of the story includes the selling of war bonds, the hanging of gold-star flags, and the saving of everyday items for the war effort.  Additionally, the town's commitment to the quarantine is two strangers, one apparently a soldier, approach the entrance to the town.
