Come to West Africa with me and my smallpox-eradicator husband. Be on the front lines in a war against the virulent disease. Savor daily life in Nigeria. Transfer with us and our two small children to Equatorial Guinea and face a rising tide of suspicion and murder as society collapses.
Watch for the historical memoir, VACCINES & BAYONETS: Fighting Smallpox in Africa amid Tribalism, Terror and the Cold War.
Right here. While waiting for the book’s release, you can glimpse the humor and horror of a true story that few have heard as you explore the pages of this website. You may even discover that VACCINES & BAYONETS reverberates in today’s news. Read excerpts. And Read my articles. Or book me to speak.
“Bee Bloeser’s story reads like a political thriller, women’s history, and African adventure rolled into one….she brings insight and humor to a dark tale of disease, corruption and genocide that unfolds around her, her husband, and their two small children. Riveting.” Pamela Alexander, Pulitzer Prize-nominee.
