The Rainer Club

Each year, the Foundation's Member Engagement Committee selects a book for all members to read. This year, they invite you to read Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic and to join us for a lively book discussion.

This year's discussion will feature research scienctist Holly Andrilla, who's produced studies including Who Treats Opioid Addiction in Rural America? Quantifying the Availability of Buprenorphine Services in Rural Areas and Supply of Physicians Waivered to Treat Opioid Addiction in Rural America: Policy Options to Remedy Critical Shortages.

This event costs $15, which includes happy hour refreshments and cocktails at The Rainer Club in downtown Seattle. You can support Washington Women's Foundation by purchasing a copy of this book at smile.amazon.com if you select Washington Women’s Foundation as your charity of choice AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the purchase price from eligible AmazonSmile purchases to customers’ selected charities.

About Dreamland: 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: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic.
