Jeff VanderMeer - Acceptance ♦
Politics and Prose, Saturday, September 27 at 6pm
Introduced in Annihilation, Area X is an enigmatic, deadly region beyond the bounds of civilization, though the powers of the Southern Reach, as Authority recounted, persist in sending expeditions to investigate what may lurk there. Now, in the trilogy’s final installment, a team sets out to Area X not to explore it but to rescue a straggler—and to try to control the place’s nefarious impact on the rest of the world.
