Book Launch: Geoff Manaugh and Nicola Twilley present Until Proven Safe: The History and Future of Quarantine
In conversation with Mary Roach

Geoff Manaugh, creator of BLDGBLOG and author of A Burglar’s Guide to the City, and Nicola Twilley, science journalist and co-host of the podcast Gastropod, come to Greenlight for the virtual launch of their new book, Until Proven Safe. Quarantine is our most powerful response to uncertainty: it means waiting to see if something hidden inside us will be revealed. It is also one of our most dangerous, operating through an assumption of guilt. In quarantine, we are considered infectious until proven safe. Manaugh and Twilley track the history and future of quarantine around the globe, chasing the story of emergency isolation through time and space. We live in a disorienting historical moment that can feel both unprecedented and inevitable; Until Proven Safe helps us make sense of our new reality through a thrillingly reported, thought-provoking exploration of the meaning of freedom, governance, and mutual responsibility. Manaugh and Twilley are joined in conversation by Mary Roach, bestselling author of Stiff, Spook, Bonk, Gulp, Grunt, Packing for Mars, and the forthcoming Fuzz.
