Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

Thursday • September 14 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

Join The Odd Shelf book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

What is it like being a woman in science? Award-winning scientist Hope Jahren examines that question and so much more in a brilliant fusion of science writing and memoir. She reveals the thrill of pursuing your dream and the inevitable mix of struggle, disappointment, and exhilarating discovery in scientific work. She brings to life the wonders of the plant world and the beauty of the human relationships that encourage and inspire us. Lab Girl is a heartfelt argument for pursuing a career in science, despite its challenges.
