Dr. Attisha on Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson.

The book dives into Dr. Attisha’s story in contributing to the discovery of elevated lead levels in Flint’s public water infrastructure. Throughout the summer, Detroit Today will lead a community-wide discussion on the story of Flint and how it’s affected the country’s views on infrastructure, justice and the relationship between state and local government.

And now, you can join us in that discussion. Read the book and engage with us online, on the radio and at events throughout the region. Here’s how:

FacebookJoin The WDET Book Club on Facebook where we will post articles and discussion topics throughout the summer. We’ll also invite guests to participate in targeted discussions you can engage in throughout the next couple of months.
