Booktalk: Pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha’s “What The Eyes Don’t See”

In Booktalk

Pediatrician and public health advocate Mona Hanna-Attisha, author of “What The Eyes Don’t See. A Story Of Crisis, Resistance, And Hope In An American City,” put the recent lead-tainted public water supply in Flint, Michigan on the national news.

 

She says her story is one of a government poisoning its own citizens and then lying about it. But the citizen involvement of Dr. Mona and other everyday citizens banning together with public officials to fix the problem has turned this saga into a story of hope.

Top authors are interviewed on this 10-minute program that captures their words about their books and ideas and often the story behind the story. The show, hosted by Diana Korte and engineered by Gene Korte, has been in production for over 20 years.
