On Monday, October 19, Fort Greene’s independent Greenlight Bookstore will host Perri Klass and Andrew Solomon in a discussion of Klass’s newest book, A Good Time to Be Born: How Science and Public Health Gave Children a Future. A history of the near-conquest of infant and child mortality, A Good Time to Be Born pays tribute to scientists, public health advocates, and groundbreaking women doctors who brought new scientific ideas about sanitation and vaccination to families. Thanks to their work, early death is now the exception, bringing about a massive transformation in society and freeing parents to worry much more about much less.
This event will be held via Zoom. Attendance is free of charge; preregistration is required to obtain an access code. For more information, and to purchase A Good Time to Be Born (and nearly any other book in print), please visit Greenlight Bookstore.
