Best-seller Quinones to speak on March 7

New York Times best-selling author and renowned journalist Sam Quinones will speak at City College about his latest book, “Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic” on March 7.

Quinones has written numerous columns and stories for the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, among other publications, many focused on the impact of Mexican migrants on the United States and on the evolution of the U.S.-Mexico border.
