"Authors and Anecdotes" Book Club: Featuring Maya Goldenberg

Join this week's featured author, Maya Goldenberg, in our virtual book club series, “Authors and Anecdotes”, as she discusses her book, Vaccine Hesitancy.  

This book explores the views on vaccine hesitancy and refusal among parents in the industrialized North. Vaccine Hesitancy argues that the real problem lies not in misunderstanding, but in mistrust. Public confidence in scientific institutions and government bodies has been shaken by fraud, research scandals, and misconduct.  Her book reveals how vaccine studies sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry, compelling rhetorics from the anti-vaccine movement, and the spread of populist knowledge on social media have all contributed to a public mistrust of the scientific consensus. In a fraught communications landscape, Vaccine Hesitancy advocates for trust-building measures that focus on relationships, transparency, and justice.

Purchasing options for the book is available on this site, and it can also be purchased at any independent bookstore of your choice. (While we encourage you to read the books ahead of time it is not a requirement to participate in the series.)

Join us as we not only discuss her book, but also dive into Goldenberg's personal literature collection, her favorite readings, and participate in a live Q&A!
