Last Town at Murray State University

Murray State University has chosen The Last Town on Earth for its Freshman Experience Book. The book will be used with incoming first year students in English and Philosophy courses.

The novel, by Thomas Mullen, tells the story of a Northwestern town quarantined during the 1918 flu pandemic and addresses issues of morality that still resonate today. It has also been adopted for common reading at Bowling Green State University, the Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program, the Western Michigan University Honors program, and Whitman College. One City, One Book adoptions include A Tale for Three Counties in Batavia, New York and Together We Read in Stanwood and Camano Island, Washington.

Thomas Mullen spoke about his novel at the First-Year Experience conference during the Sixth Annual Random House Author Luncheon. View the video here! He has also written an original piece for our sister blog, Debate This Book. Read it and comment to let us know what you think.
