“What the Eyes Don’t See” Book Club


As part of the Great Michigan Read, and thanks to resources from the Michigan Humanities Council, the Humanities Learning Center of Delta College will be hosting a book club on What the Eyes Don’t See by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, Flint pediatrician.

“Here is the inspiring story of how Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, alongside a team of researchers, parents, friends, and community leaders, discovered that the children of Flint, Michigan, were being exposed to lead in their tap water—and then battled her own government and a brutal backlash to expose that truth to the world. … At the center of the story is Dr. Mona herself—an immigrant, doctor, scientist, and mother whose family’s activist roots inspired her pursuit of justice.” – Penguin Random House, publisher of What the Eyes Don’t See.

Join Delta’s HLC as we read this riveting account that addresses water quality & access, environmental injustice, and the intersection of science & the humanities.

Our book club will meet at the following times—you can attend one session, two sessions, or all three. We are conducting each discussion independently, so if you can only make one, please stop by.

Wednesday, October 23, 12-1 (in H-101 on main campus)

Session #2
