The Floyd Country Store presents a Dopesick Film Screening with a Q&A with Author Beth Macy on Wednesday, October 20, 2021.

Join us on for the premiere of the first episode of Dopesick. The screening is presented by the Floyd Country Store and Handmade Music School along with Hulu and featuring a Q&A with our good friend and author Beth Macy.

From Executive Producer Danny Strong and starring and executive produced by Michael Keaton, "Dopesick" examines how one company triggered the worst drug epidemic in American history. The series takes viewers to the epicenter of America’s struggle with opioid addiction, from the boardrooms of Big Pharma, to a distressed Virginia mining community, to the hallways of the DEA. Defying all the odds, heroes will emerge in an intense and thrilling ride to take down the craven corporate forces behind this national crisis and their allies.

The limited series is inspired by the New York Times bestselling book by the same name written by Beth Macy.

Beth Macy is a New York Times-bestselling author of two books, "Factory Man" and "Truevine". Macy’s work as a newspaper reporter, mostly at The Roanoke Times, featured outsiders and underdogs and won more than a dozen awards. Her books reflect a deep respect for the stories of marginalized people and communities, dogged persistence in her research, and a gift for telling complicated stories in a compelling way.

Her work has also been featured in Oprah magazine, PARADE, American Journalism Review, Salon, the Christian Science Monitor and "The Best Newspaper Writing" anthology.

Her forthcoming book, "Dopesick", is a look at the opioid epidemic as it unfolded in three Virginia communities; it will be published in August.
