"Influenza and Inequality" Book Discussion with Patricia Fanning @ Morrill Memorial Library, Simoni Room | Norwood | Massachusetts | United States

Patricia Fanning will lead a discussion of her book,”Influenza and Inequality,”  weaving together the local history of the 1918 influenza epidemic and personal/familial recollections from participants. What was distinctive about the influenza epidemic in Norwood, and why did the response here differ from elsewhere? Copies will be available to pick up at the Library.

This collaborative program series was born from a desire to recognize the 100-year commemoration of the 1918  Flu Epidemic, and the impact it had on the people of our town. Please join us for this exciting and informative series. This program series is funded in part by Mass Humanities, which receives support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
