Description

Journalist Lee Daniel Kravetz’s latest book, Strange Contagion, is a provocative look at both the science and lived experience of social contagion. The 2009 suicide of a high school student in Palo Alto was followed by other teen suicides. Kravetz examines how a lone act led to a suicide cluster in a community of hyper-vigilant adults and came up with an answer: a storm of social “viruses” that combined to trigger a volatile “Strange Contagion.” Sponsor: Diablo Valley Hadassah and Beth Chaim Cong.

Admission is free.
