An evening with Carey Gillam, the Truth Behind Monsanto and Roundup

November 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Science reporter Carey Gillam, discusses The Monsanto Papers, a tale of deadly secrets, corruption and one man’s search for justice.

WHE is pleased to present An Evening with Carey Gillam. Join us for a lively presentation with journalist and author Carey Gillam as she discusses her book, The Monsanto Papers.

The Monsanto Papers is the inside story of Lee Johnson’s landmark lawsuit against Monsanto. For Lee, the case was a race against the clock, with doctors predicting he wouldn’t survive long enough to take the witness stand.

For the public at large, the lawsuit presented a question of corporate accountability. With enough money and influence, could a company endanger its customers, hide evidence, manipulate regulators, and get away with it all—for decades? You will be astounded by the depth of corruption uncovered, captivated by the shocking twists, and moved by Lee’s quiet determination to see justice served.

“…the sordid story of how chemical giant Monsanto worked for decades to suppress, conceal and distort evidence of the health hazards of glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide. Told by seasoned science journalist Carey Gillam, The Monsanto Papers blends science and human tragedy with courtroom drama in the style of John Grisham. It is a story of corporate malfeasance on a grand scale – a chilling revelation of the chemical industry’s greed, arrogance and reckless disregard for human life and the health of our planet. It is a must read.”
