Event description
A Conversation with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, author of "What the Eyes Don't See"

About this Event

Please join us for a moderated conversation with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, author of the 2019-2020 selection for the Great Michigan Read: What the Eyes Don’t See (Bring your copy of the book and have it signed by the author!)

“The 2019-20 Great Michigan Read is presented by Michigan Humanities and supported by national, statewide, and local partners, including the National Endowment for the Humanities and The Meijer Foundation.”

Here 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. … 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.” – Penguin Random House, publisher of What the Eyes Don’t See.

Awards received by Dr. Mona Hanna – Attisha and What the Eyes Don’t See include:

• Named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World for her role in uncovering the Flint water crisis and leading recovery efforts

• 2019 Finalist for Science & Technology, Los Angeles Times Book Prize

• The New York Times’ 100 Notable Books of 2018

• 2019 Michigan Notable Book

This event is made possible by Michigan Humanities in partnership with Oakland Community College Libraries, Farmington Community Library, and West Bloomfield Public Library
