Bringing Home the Opioid Epidemic

Essayist and New Yorker staff writer Margaret Talbot presents a cogent lecture on the opioid epidemic (a subject she reported on for the magazine in 2017), as told through the lives and narratives of individuals. In conjunction with Brooklyn Academy of Music’s presentation of Eugene O’Neill’s devastating study of addiction Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Talbot looks at the ramifications of addiction in the Tyrone family and connects it to the ravaging effects that our current crisis is having on families across the country.
