Join us for an online book club to discuss What The Eyes Don't See, a powerful first-hand account of the Flint water crisis.

About this event

The Center for Public Humanities at Oakland University, an official partner of the Michigan Humanities' Great Michigan Read initiative, invites you to join an online book club to discuss What The Eyes Don’t See by Dr. Mona Hannah-Attisha.

This online book club is limited to the first 30 registered and will be hosted via video chat. To begin, readers will meet in three discussion groups, led by Oakland University professors. Small groups will join together and conclude with about 15 minutes of whole-group discussion.

Complimentary books will be sent in early October to those who have registered.
