Dear So and So,

Thank you for your interest in the Guilty Remnant. If you’d like to know more about our organization, you should read The Leftovers, by Tom Perrotta. For a closer look at our community, feel free to drop by our compound, located on Gingko Street in Mapleton. Guided tours and overnight visits are available by reservation. And don’t worry: There’s always room for one more.

Join the Guilty Remnant. Belong to the New World.


G.R. Staff
