Margy Stewart will lead a discussion of this year’s Kansas Reads selection “Then We Came to the End” by Joshua Ferris. The book is a comedy about the American workplace, told in the first-person plural. It takes place in a fictitious Chicago ad agency that is experiencing a downturn at the end of the '90s Internet boom. It would appeal to anyone who has ever worked in an office or other business with lots of coworkers. The titular
“End” is the closing of the business, which everyone in the novel expects but no one is really prepared for. This book captures the feeling of being the last man standing, the one who will be left to turn off the lights. There is a lot to discuss in this book, including the timeliness of the subject matter: layoffs. Copies of the book are available for loan and can be picked up at the library.
