Recommend One Second After as a complement to World Made by Hand



Hello book friends,
I have just finished our January selection World Made by Hand which I very much look forward to discussing in January.  After you’ve finished it, if you’re looking for more, I recommend One Second After* by William R. Forstchen as a good complement. One Second After addresses life in the IMMEDIATE aftermath (in this case of an electromagnetic pulse), while World Made by Hand represents life 10+ years later. Each book triggered lots of pondering - but about somewhat different things.
*Billie Perkins nominated this book for our club a few years ago but it was not selected.
