Can’t Make This Stuff Up… A Non-Fiction Book Group at Seekonk Library


Seekonk, MA – Join us for a lively discussion of What the Eyes Don't See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance and Hope in an American City by Mona Hanna-Attisha at the Seekonk Library on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 6:00 pm. For two years, 100,000 people had a water supply poisoned by lead in the city of Flint, Michigan. Pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha witnessed firsthand that the children of Flint had rising levels of lead in their blood, but her call of alarm went unheeded. What the Eyes Don’t See details how a community came together to demand justice from a government that blithely looked the other way. This book, as well as each following months’, will leave you wondering how this story could possibly be true. As it turns out, you can’t make this stuff up…

Our book group meets on the last Tuesday of every month at 6 PM and tackles a variety of nonfiction topics from gambling to birding and even mortality itself; it’s nonfiction that fiction readers can enjoy. New members are most welcome. Even if you only read a small portion of the book we’d love to hear what you have to say!

This program is free and open to all.
