Written in the Stars

Location:

Community-Wide

Event Type(s): Lecture / Workshop
Organization: U.Va. Lifetime Learning
Description: Written in the Stars – Untold Stories of Women in Science

In this 2017 Virginia Festival of the Book program, sponsored by Lifetime Learning in UVA’s Office of Engagement, authors Margot Lee Shetterly (Hidden Figures) and Dava Sobel (The Glass Universe) will discuss their new books and careers as female historians as well as the impact they hope their work has, both in print and film adaptations.

The authors’ new books share the accomplishments of unsung women mathematicians and scientists—”human computers”—working with NASA and the Harvard College Observatory in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Historically austere at times yet evocatively personal at others, these are the true-life tales of the women who helped achieve some of America’s greatest work in our understanding of the stars and our exploration of space.
