Due to availability issues, June's book has been changed. The new book is Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. For July 6, pick your own book related to the 1918 Spanish Flu, and we can share book reviews! We will pick the next year’s books in August.
Lab Girl is a book about work, love, and the mountains that can be moved when those two things come together. Acclaimed scientist Hope Jahren has built three laboratories in which she’s studied trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. Her first book is a revelatory treatise on plant life—but it is also so much more. The book is told through Jahren’s stories: 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 learned to perform lab work done “with both the heart and the hands”; and about the inevitable disappointments, but also the triumphs and exhilarating discoveries, of scientific work.
