Book Club Discussion

Join us as we discuss What the Eyes Don't See by Mona Hanna-Attisha via Zoom on Thursday, November 30th at 6:30 PM. This will be a book club discussion led by librarians from the Wegner Library.

What the Eyes Don't See

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. Paced like a scientific thriller, What the Eyes Don’t See reveals how misguided austerity policies, broken democracy, and callous bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk. And 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.
