Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures and Medical Prescriptions

The Library is hosting a new traveling exhibition from the National Library of Medicine entitled Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures and Medical Prescriptions.

Mind-altering drugs have been used throughout the history of America. While some remain socially acceptable, others are outlawed because of their toxic, and intoxicating, characteristics. These classifications have shifted at different times in history and will continue to change. The six-banner display explores the factors that have shaped the changing definitions of some of our most potent drugs, from medical miracle to social menace.

This exhibition was produced by the National Library of Medicine and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. It will be on display in the library from December 12, 2016, to January 21, 2017.

Typhoid Mary

The Einstein Book Club will continue its New York City-themed reading with Anthony Bourdain’s perspective on the story of Typhoid Mary. “Bourdain chooses to light the story’s shadows by relating to her as a once-proud, broken-down cook, interpreting Mallon’s infecting spree with a kitchen-hardened aplomb and New York attitude.” — Library Journal.  The entire Einstein community is invited to join the Book Club on March 9 from Noon-1:00pm to discuss this book.
