Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic by Sam Quinones
Sam Quinones chronicles how, over the past 15 years, enterprising sugar cane farmers in a small county on the west coast of Mexico created a unique distribution system that brought black tar heroin-- the cheapest, most addictive form of the opiate, 2 to 3 times purer than its white powder cousin-- to the veins of people across the United States.
Cook the Book
Stop by the Reference Desk and browse the cookbooks we have selected. Each time we meet, we try a different type of dish. In the past we've done appetizers, cookies, soups, sauces, and salads.
Choose a recipe and we will photocopy it for you. Make it at home and bring it to the library. We will all share the food we have made as well as all the recipes and our thoughts about them.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 12 at 1 p.m. - Breads and spreads
