America lost 300,000 people to accidental overdose in the past 15 years. In just 5 years, we will lose another 300,000.

Ballad Health and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee invite you to join us in a “book club” discussion about the opioid epidemic with Sam Quinones, author of Dreamland.
To help produce more robust and meaningful discussions, we encourage you to read this compelling novel in advance of the event.
In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America--addiction like no other the country has ever faced. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland.
With a great reporter's narrative skill and the storytelling ability of a novelist, acclaimed journalist Sam Quinones shows that Dreamland is a revelatory account of the corrosive threat facing America and its heartland.
