Chris McGreal signs and discusses “American Overdose”

Left Bank Books welcomes Guardian reporter and former BBC journalist Chris McGreal, who will sign and discuss his new book, “American Overdose: The Opioid Tragedy in Three Acts”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “American Overdose” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

The opioid epidemic has been described as “one of the greatest mistakes of modern medicine.” But calling it a mistake is a generous rewriting of the history of greed, corruption, and indifference that pushed the US into consuming more than 80 percent of the world’s opioid painkillers. Journeying through lives and communities wrecked by the epidemic, Chris McGreal reveals not only how Big Pharma hooked Americans on powerfully addictive drugs, but the corrupting of medicine and public institutions that let the opioid makers get away with it.
