Pfeiffer to Speak at Ridgefield Library Thursday Evening, June 14
Mary Beth Pfeiffer will discuss her new book-- “Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change” -- at the Ridgefield (CT) Library on Thursday evening, June 14. Pfeiffer documents the human contribution to the dangerous spread of Lyme disease to dozens of countries and multitudes of people and challenges medical dogma that has left many untreated. "Lyme" makes a powerful case for action to combat ticks, address patient pain, and recognize humanity's role in creating an epidemic.
Pfeiffer has been a journalist for four decades. In the last five years, she has emerged as the nation's leading investigative reporter on Lyme disease, attracting national and international attention and winning seven awards for her groundbreaking articles. Pfeiffer was the first recipient of Lyme Connection's Courage in Journalism Award in 2014.
This program is co-sponsored by Ridgefield Library, Lyme Connection and Books on the Common. Copies of Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change will be available for sale and signing at the event. Register HERE.
