Preparing for the Apocalypse? We can help!

Post-Apocalyptic Fiction

It’s National Preparedness Month which is an observance each September to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time. So, get prepared:

  1. Get informed (we suggest registering at NotifyJoCo for emergency alerts.)
  2. Make a plan
  3. Assemble a Kit
  4. Maintain your kit

And, make sure there's a good book in that kit! Can we suggest a Post-apocalyptic fiction title?

Post-apocalyptic fiction

We welcome back Gregg Winsor and friends to take a deep-dive into Post-apocalyptic fiction—a subgenre of science fiction where some disaster has occurred, and we discover IF the characters were … prepared.
