EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Glocester Senior Center Book Discussion

Wednesday February 12, 2020
1:00 PM until 2:00 PM


Join us for a discussion of What the Eyes Don't See : a Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City by Mona Hanna-Attisha.  This is the inspiring story of how Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, alongside a team of researchers, parents, friends, and community leaders, discovered that the children of Flint, Michigan, were being exposed to lead in their tap water—and then battled her own government and a brutal backlash to expose that truth to the world. Paced like a scientific thriller, What the Eyes Don’t See reveals how misguided austerity policies, broken democracy, and callous bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk. And at the center of the story is Dr. Mona herself—an immigrant, doctor, scientist, and mother whose family’s activist roots inspired her pursuit of justice.

 

Note: Registration is not necessary. Participants can pick up your book at the Harmony Library.
