Los Angeles-based freelance journalist Sam Quinones will discuss his new book and answer questions. Quinones is author of four books of narrative nonfiction, including "Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opioid Epidemic" (2015). His latest book is "The Least of Us: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth," in which he 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.
"The Least of Us" releases November 2. Check it out through the library or order it at https://geni.us/theleastofus.
