Flint Water Crisis Discussion – Jackson
Sep 23 @ 6:00 pm

 The Jackson District Library will host doctor, author, and advocate Mona Hanna-Attisha this month as well as a discussion panel made up of community members and experts to review and discuss Hanna-Attisha’s book “What the Eyes Don’t See.”

Hanna-Attisha’s critically acclaimed account of the Flint Water Crisis is a riveting account of a disaster that became a tale of hope, and copies of the book are available to check out from any JDL location. Part of a larger initiative dubbed “The Great Michigan Read,” JDL and the city of Jackson have partnered to promote Hanna-Attisha’s book to area residents since March.

Set for 6 PM Thursday, Sept. 10, the Community Panel Book Discussion will include Daveda Quinn, former supervisor at the city of Jackson’s wastewater treatment plant; Monica Day, Jackson Environmental Commission member; and Jackson Mayor Derek Dobies, who named “What the Eyes Don’t See” his “Book of the Year” back in March, kicking off the community reading event.

Later this month, Hanna-Attisha will be live on Zoom to discuss her book and take questions from participants. The author discussion event is set for 6 PM Wednesday, Sept. 23.

 “We’re incredibly excited to not only have a great slate of community experts and officials for a live-streamed discussion, but to have the author herself visit us virtually as well,” Jackson District Library Director Sara Tackett said. “There is still much to learn from the Flint Water Crisis, and some of the disaster’s not-so-well-known repercussions will be brought to light.”

Both events will be live-streamed on Zoom as well as the Jackson District Library’s Facebook page. To sign up for either event, visit JDL’s website at or their Facebook page and register via Zoom.
