Exhibit Lecture: Inventing the Non-Smoker

Dr. Sarah Milov, Professor of History at the University of Virginia, will discuss her recently published book, "The Cigarette: A Political History" (Harvard University Press, 2019), in conjunction with our new library exhibit in the Mary Duke Biddle Room, Tobaccoland.

The exhibit examines the role that tobacco marketing, branding, and nicotine addiction have played in twentieth-century American history through collections held by the Rubenstein Library.
