 Join the discussion of the epidemic that affects towns across America--including our own. Whether you have read the book or not, the inclusive book club is open to all women!

From a small town in Mexico to the boardrooms of Big Pharma, an explosive and shocking account of addiction and black tar heroin in the heartland of America.

In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America--addiction like no other the country has ever faced. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland.




A book club to specifically serve women in the Vail Valley, coming together through hot-topic books and discussion, while connecting them to community organizations.


This book club will be centered on a new topic and book every month. Each month the topic will be chosen by the group and connected to our greater community. The club will meet to discuss the book and the relation to their lives while reaching to help our community and other people around.
