Manzanita Writers' Series Presents
7 to 9 pm
Author Thomas Hager will read from his new book, Ten Drugs: How Plants, Powders, and Pills Have Shaped the History of Medicine.
Behind every landmark drug is a story. It could be an oddball researcher’s genius insight, a catalyzing moment in geopolitical history, a new breakthrough technology, or an unexpected but welcome side effect discovered during clinical trials. Piece together these stories, as Thomas Hager does in this remarkable, century-spanning history, and you can trace the evolution of our culture and the practice of medicine.
“Lucidly informative and compulsively readable” (Publishers Weekly). “Skillfully told and entirely entertaining” (Kirkus Reviews, starred).
