Sigrid Rausing - Mayhem — in conversation with Scott Stossel

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, September 26, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Rausing’s third book combines memoir and social science for a harrowing look at drug addiction. For years before her sister-in-law was found dead of an overdose in London in 2012, Rausing and her family struggled with how to help, and she writes eloquently about the pain of being unable to prevent a loved one’s self-destruction. As she traces the roots of her family’s problem, Rausing, editor of Granta, publisher of Granta Books, and founder of one of Britain’s largest philanthropic foundations, raises awareness of the growing numbers of people addicted to prescription painkillers.

Rausing will be in conversation with Scott Stossel, editor of The Atlantic and author of My Age of Anxiety.
