“As a voracious reader, I’m glad to join the Rhode Island Center for the Book to introduce the new Reading Across Rhode Island selection,” said U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. “What the Eyes Don’t See holds timely lessons from the tragedy in Flint, Michigan about the importance of taking an active role in democracy, standing up for what you know is right, and fighting for environmental justice.”
