Freelance journalist and author Sam Quinones is visiting Hillsdale College on Monday to speak about his new book “Dreamland: America’s Opiate Addiction Epidemic and How We Got Here.”
“Dreamland” begins with a story in Ohio — opioid use is especially problematic in the Midwest. Quinones’ work is particularly relevant to the Hillsdale area because the city suffers from opioid addiction, Dow Journalism Program Assistant Director Maria Servold said.
“Mr. Quinones’ book is not only good journalism, it’s also extremely relevant to the Hillsdale community,” Servold said. “It tells an interesting and tragic story about opioid use in our country today.”
The speech will take place in Dow A & B at 8 p.m.
