More than one in seven children now get diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder – three times what experts say is appropriate. Alan Schwarz, an award-winning New York Times national correspondent, discusses his latest book, ADHD Nation: Children, Doctors, Big Pharma, and the Making of an American Epidemic. This compelling read exposes the roots and rise of ADHD, and reveals the powerful cultural and economic forces fueling its widespread diagnosis and drug treatment.

Alan Schwarz is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated reporter at The New York Times best known for a major investigative series of 100 articles that exposed the seriousness of concussions among football players of all ages. He has won many major journalism awards, including the Polk Award, the Associated Press award for project reporting (three times), and the 2013 Excellence in Statistical Reporting Award from the American Statistical Association. He and his family live in New York City.

The bookseller for this event is Green Apple Books.
