Event Details

Join the Tecumseh District Library for a live, virtual conversation with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, author of the Great Michigan Read What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City, and conversation partner Sonja Downey, Supervisor of Circulation Services.

Registration is required and is open now. Visit this page for registration details and technical requirements.

During this virtual book talk, you will hear the story of how Dr. Mona stood up to government officials who dismissed the crisis and how she and a small team of crusaders finally got the government to pay attention and take action.

Dr. Mona is now the founder and director of the Michigan State University and Hurley Children’s Pediatric Public Health Initiative, a model public health program created to mitigate the impact of the crisis.

This special event will also be streamed on Facebook Live, which can be viewed from the library’s Facebook page here.
