Adult Book Discussion, Wednesday, June 23rd, 11AM

Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker

Join us on the Library’s front lawn!

 The heartrending story of a midcentury American family with twelve children, six of them diagnosed with schizophrenia, that became science’s great hope in the quest to understand the disease.

     What took place inside the house on Hidden Valley Road was so extraordinary that the Galvins became one of the first families to be studied by the National Institute of Mental Health. Their story offers a shadow history of the science of schizophrenia, from the era of institutionalization, lobotomy, and the schizophrenogenic mother to the search for genetic markers for the disease, always amid profound disagreements about the nature of the illness itself. And unbeknownst to the Galvins, samples of their DNA informed decades of genetic research that continues today, offering paths to treatment, prediction, and even eradication of the disease for future generations.

IMPORTANT: Discussion will be outside, weather permitting. In the event of rain, we will meet via Zoom.

Limited copies of this book will be available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to attend!
