Join in on the discussion hosted by a UW Graduate student of UW-Madison’s 2019 Go Big Read selection, “The Poison Squad” by Debroah Blum.

Detailing the complex interchanges of industry, media, and government regulation with a bracing clarity, “The Poison Squad” offers a prescient perspective on the enormous social and political challenges we face today.
