Check back next week for these posts and more:
1. A Review of Dreamland by Sam Quiones
A fascinating look at America’s opiate epidemic. The story moves from small-towns in Mexico, up through major metropolitan cities, back to rural towns in the U.S. It explores the inner works of Ad agencies, pharmaceutical companies, pain management theories, and the personal lives of addicts. Written from a true journalist’s perspective this is the story told by the people involved. A compelling read.

Part two of this series will explore the true Christmas miracle and how the Birth of Christ changes our experience of holiday sorrows.
