Live streamed to the Garden from New York, USA

Patrick Radden Keefe’s remarkable Say Nothing documented the Troubles in Northern Ireland and was named by The New York Times as one of the best books of 2019. His follow up is Empire of Pain, an equally powerful account of the opioid crisis gripping America and the family that created it and continues to profit from it. Patrick meticulously chronicles the rise of the Sackler family, whose company invented the highly addictive OxyContin, and damns a country too cowed by money to protect its own citizens.
