Q&A with Author Sam Quinones [Virtual]

January 12 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for a Q&A with  journalist Sam Quinones, author of the groundbreaking book Dreamland: True Tales of America’s Opiate Epidemic, which ignited awareness of the epidemic that cost the U.S. hundreds of thousands of lives. Sam’s newest book is The Least of Us: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth,  which chronicles the rise of fentanyl, a cheap and lethal drug marketed to those who became addicted during the opioid epidemic, as well as Americans’ quiet attempts to recover community through simple acts of helping the vulnerable.Sam is a Los Angeles-based freelance journalist, a reporter for 35 years, and author of four acclaimed books of narrative nonfiction. He is a veteran reporter on immigration, gangs, drug trafficking and the border.

In “The Least of Us” (published October 2021), Quinones chronicles the emergence of a drug-trafficking world producing massive supplies of dope cheaper and deadlier than ever, marketing to the population of addicts created by the nation’s opioid epidemic, as the backdrop to tales of Americans’ quiet attempts to recover community through simple acts of helping the vulnerable. In January 2022, “The Least of Us” was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) award for Best Nonfiction Book of 2021.

The library has several copies of “The Least of Us” available to check out. For more info about the author please visit https://samquinones.com/
