ST. CHARLES – For 2008 St. Charles East High School graduate Ellen Castellini, the book "Station Eleven" was a page-turner.
"I loved the way she wove together so many different timelines and characters," Castellini said. "I thought the characters felt real and I just thought it was a wonderful book."
Castellini was one of 170 people who came to the Arcada Theatre on April 29 to hear "Station Eleven" author Emily St. John Mandel discuss the award-winning book, which has been translated into 31 languages.
