This February and March the DA Denmark bookclub will be reading Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty by Patrick Radden Keefe. From Goodreads:
"The Sackler name adorns the walls of many storied institutions: Harvard, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Oxford, the Louvre. They are one of the richest families in the world, known for their lavish donations to the arts and sciences. The source of the family fortune was vague, however, until it emerged that the Sacklers were responsible for making and marketing OxyContin, a blockbuster painkiller that was a catalyst for the opioid crisis.
A masterful and thorough investigation into the Sackler Family, this is a book that the New York Times says "...will make your blood boil."
