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:
- Get informed (we suggest registering at NotifyJoCo for emergency alerts.)
- Make a plan
- Assemble a Kit
- Maintain your kit
And, make sure there's a good book in that kit! Can we suggest a Post-apocalyptic fiction title?
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.
Charles’ Choices: The Passage by Justin Cronin & Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton
