Program Description

Event Details

Sometimes the real world can be stranger than fiction. Join this non-fiction book club for a discussion of Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. Copies will be available for checkout from the library. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom meeting ID & passcode.

Jahren has built three laboratories in which she's studied trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. She tells about her childhood in rural Minnesota with an uncompromising mother and a father who encouraged hours of play in his classroom's labs; about how she found a sanctuary in science, and the disappointments, triumphs and exhilarating discoveries of scientific work.
