|Event:||FSS-06 Opium Trade in Connecicut|
|Time:||10:00 to 12:00|
|Presenter:||Richard Friswell, Wesleyan University|
|Richard Friswell highlights his exciting work of historical fiction, Merchants of Deceit: Opium, American Fortune and the China Trade, based on the life and times of Sam Russell, a businessman. It follows imagined adventures and challenges as he negotiates the treacherous world of drug dealing, international intrigue, deal-making, new-found love and loss, violence and human cruelty beyond anything he had ever known. This is the human story of his struggle to make sense of an illicit world of drugs, graft, corruption and death, while remaining true to his awaiting family, community and values, half-a-world away.|
