This year’s Harris Common Read delves into one of the greatest dereliction of duties in modern political history. What the Eyes Don’t See by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha is a firsthand account of the Flint water crisis and its effect on countless lives, revealing how misguided policies, failed democracy, and bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk.

A pediatrician and social advocate, and the daughter of Iraqi immigrants, Dr. Hanna-Attisha chronicles her fight to help the residents of Flint, Michigan, through the use of science, medicine, and activism that eventually gained international attention – but only after experiencing much personal strife.

In collaboration with the Program on Global Environment's Frizzell Family Speaker and Learning Series, join us for a conversation with Dr. Hanna-Attisha to culminate our Common Read events for the 2020-2021 school year. 

The Frizzell Family Speaker and Learning Series is a year-long, student-organized series of events that engages the fields of agriculture, environment, health, and best practices drawn from social science inquiry. The Frizzell Series is meant to commemorate the life, accomplishments, and aspirations of Alexandra Frizzell, and is administered by the College and the Program on the Global Environment.
