Eula Biss: immunity and vaccination

From Saturday Morning, 8:15 am on 7 February 2015

Immunity and vaccination

Eula Biss teaches at Northwestern University in Chicago, and won the National Book Critics Circle Award for her 2009 book of criticism, Notes From No Man’s Land: American Essays (Graywolf Press).

Her new book was prompted by her experiences as a new mother, and explores vaccination and its history, and parenthood, public health and the body.
