Last Night On Earth
Tonight, the world will end. Everything you love will cease to exist. How do you spend your last 24 hours? When everything you know is going to die, how do you live?
We asked that question of people far and wide, adults and schoolkids, exploring the idea that we only really see our lives for what they are once we accept they're going to end.
Strip away the illusion of a future, and what you get is "Last Night On Earth," a single novel written by 20 different authors from all over the world, chronicling the final day of their lives in the face of a coming apocalypse. Evocative of "War of the Worlds" without the aliens, and "Our Town" if it were set globally, "Last Night On Earth" is a brave and honest look at discovering meaning without illusion.
