Michael Kinch signs and discusses “Between Hope and Fear”

Left Bank Books welcomes author and Washington University Vice Chancellor Michael Kinch, who will sign and discuss his new book, “Between Hope and Fear: A History of Vaccines and Human Immunity”!

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

If you have a child in school, you may have heard stories of long-dormant diseases suddenly reappearing—cases of measles, mumps, rubella, and whooping cough cropping up everywhere from elementary schools to Ivy League universities because a select group of parents refuse to vaccinate their children. “Between Hope and Fear” tells the remarkable story of vaccine-preventable infectious diseases and their social and political implications. While detailing the history of vaccine invention, Kinch reveals the ominous reality that our victories against vaccine-preventable diseases are not permanent—and could easily be undone.
