Doctor to speak about his account with ebola

On Wednesday, October 18th at 7:00 p.m., there will be a talk about Ebola by Dr. Steven Hatch.  Dr. Hatch, an infectious disease specialist, has written a book called Inferno: A Doctor’s Ebola Story.  This is his account of the epidemic that nearly consumed the nation of Liberia, as he came to work there in November 2013 and six months later, several of the physicians he had served with were either dead or unable to work, and Ebola had become a world health emergency.  Powerful and clear-eyed, this book not only explores a deadly virus and an afflicted country, but also reveals how the Ebola outbreak stoked nativist anxieties that were exploited for political gain in the U.S. and around the world.  A book signing will follow this interesting author talk.

All of these programs are kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library, and the concert series is also supported by the Milton Woman’s Club.  They are free and open to the public, and will be held in the Keys Community Room unless otherwise specified.  Please come and enjoy our library’s happenings this October.  For more information, go to our website  or contact Jean Hlady, Adult Services Librarian, at 617-698-5757, x. 3.
