Next Stage
15 Kimball Hill Rd
Putney, VT

 

Author David Blistein returns to Next Stage to read from his new book “Opium: How an Ancient Flower Shaped and Poisoned Our World”.

Mr. Blistein will be joined by his co-author Dr. John Halpern and the pair will facilitate a Q&A with the audience following the reading.

Admission $5 – $35 sliding scale with 100% of the ticket sales supporting Groundworks Collaborative and Next Stage Arts Project. Signed copies of the book will be available for sale.

In 2017 over 47,000 Americans died as the result of opioid overdoses, more than died annually in this country during the peak of the AIDs epidemic, and more than die every year from breast cancer. On a statewide level, Vermont has been ravaged by this epidemic. But despite the unprecedented efforts of regulators, activists, politicians, and doctors to address the overdose epidemic, it has only become more deadly, the legion of quick fixes often falling into the very same traps that have foiled humans attempting to tame the scourge of opium addiction for centuries. To truly understand and combat the overdose crisis, how it came to be must be understood.

Thursday, November 21, 7:30PM at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill in downtown Putney, VT. Tickets on a sliding scale $5-$25, available at the door or www.nextstagearts.org

The event is a benefit with 100% of ticket sales supporting Groundworks Collaborative and Next Stage Arts Project.
