Peoria Reads! Museum of Civilization

Peoria Reads! Museum of Civilization - Main Library

Peoria Reads! presents the Museum of Civilization, modeled after the Museum of Civilization described in this year’s selected book Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. The book takes place 20 years after a devastating flu pandemic destroys civilization as we know it. One survivor begins collecting items, once common and now puzzling and foreign, for The Museum of Civilization, housed in a portion of former airport. Come see objects that would have been familiar just a short time ago but as civilization changes, so do we. Read the book and get involved! Free and open to the public during regular library hours.

Location: Peoria Public Library - Peoria, Illinois
