2019 Michigan Notable Book author Anna Clark will be at the library to discuss her book
The Poisoned City: Flint’s Water and the American Urban Tragedy

Her book was chosen as one of 20 outstanding works of fiction or nonfiction written about Michigan or by a Michigan author and published in the previous calendar year. It’s also won numerous additional awards for excellence in nonfiction writing.

She’ll discuss the people and events that took place leading up to the discovery of dangerous lead levels flowing through outdated and untreated pipes effectively poisoning a whole town.  She’ll recount stories of concerned and outraged residents who just wanted answers and couldn’t find anyone to provide them. And stories of misleading reporting from trusted government agencies.  

The book is currently available to checkout at the library.
