The Glass Hotel Book Club Kit

Critics call The Glass Hotel “unerringly graceful” (NPR) and “flawlessly constructed” (The Boston Globe), and we could not agree more! Whether you’ve been binging Station Eleven or can’t wait for Emily’s newest novel, Sea of Tranquility, now is the perfect time for your book club to dive into The Glass Hotel.

This exhilarating novel is set at the glittering intersection of two seemingly disparate events: the exposure of a massive criminal enterprise and the mysterious disappearance of a woman from a ship at sea. The New York Times bestselling author asks: Why do people commit crimes and how do they become complicit in them? How can you both know and not know something at the same time?

To help your book club explore these questions, we’ve put together a book club kit which includes a discussion guide, a Ponzi scheme flow chart, and a reading list from Emily St. John Mandel herself! To download a pdf, click here or on the image below.
