Real People/Real Stories: A Nonfiction Book Club

April 21 @ 2:00 pm

Free

Real People/Real Stories explores the best in nonfiction history, biography, science, nature, and the arts.

Join us this month as we discuss Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty by Patrick Radden Keefe.

This damning investigation chronicles three generations of the Sackler family, whose fortune was built on Valium but whose reputation has been destroyed by OxyContin. Keefe’s meticulously-reported saga landed on multiple “Best of 2021” lists.

“…a page-turner with a villainous family… where every chapter ends with the perfect bombshell.” — Esquire
