Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Gathered from national and regional newspapers, magazines, and literary journals, the pieces in this collection constitute some of the best and most powerful writing available on the disastrous opioid epidemic. Edited by John McMillian, an associate professor of American history at Georgia State University and the author of Beatles vs. Stones and Smoking Typewriters, the book gives a nearly comprehensive view of the epidemic’s origins, consequences, and human toll. Written by nationally recognized writers, including many Pulitzer Prize-winners, the volume also charts the stages of the growing public recognition of the calamity. McMillian will be in conversation with Margaret Talbot, a staff writer for The New Yorker.
