Associate Faculty Member Dr. Danya Fast New Book Raises Tough Questions

Dr. Danya Fast was recently interviewed by the Vancouver Sun about her research looking at the stories of young people living on the streets of Vancouver and her new book ” The Best Place: Addiction, Intervention, and Living and Dying Young in Vancouver”

“I hope that the book humanizes these young people,” Fast said. “This is a group of funny, awkward, fierce, complicated, young people — teenagers and very young adults — who had, in some ways, very ordinary dreams of making a life in Vancouver. And far too many of them lost their lives far too soon.” – Danya Fast
