Book Launch: American Overdose: The Opioid Tragedy in Three Acts by Chris McGreal — in conversation w/ Philip Gourevitch

POWERHOUSE @ the Archway

In American Overdose: The Opioid Tragedy in Three Acts, British investigative journalist Chris McGreal scrutinizes these questions by calling to account those who Americans look to protect them yet stand idly by as the bodies pile up year after year. While other books dwell on victims, this book is unique in that it focuses on the perpetrators, the villains, to construct a picture of how Big Pharma adapted their strategy over time to discredit the evidence that mass opioid prescribing was creating an epidemic.

Book Launch: The Labyrinth by Saul Steinberg — Discussion w/ Liana Finck, Bill Kartalopoulos, Françoise Mouly, and Joel Smith

POWERHOUSE @ the Archway

Liana Finck, Bill Kartalopolous, Françoise Mouly, and Joel Smith will discuss the importance of Saul Steinberg’s The Labyrinth, first published in 1960 and now back in print from New York Review Books. In his books, Steinberg used drawing as a kind of thinking without words. More than a simple catalog or collection of artwork, the carefully arranged pages in The Labyrinth record a brilliant, constantly evolving imagination confronting modern life. It was published during the point in Steinberg’s career when he was starting to shift from commercial and magazine work to drawings for The New Yorker and gallery exhibitions and when his art took on a more intellectual tone.
