1 pm to 2:30 pm in Creveling Lounge
Nathalia Holt will visit PCC to read and discuss her work. Rise of the Rocket Girls is a riveting, exhaustively researched account of the young women recruited by the Jet Propulsion Lab in the 1940s and 1950s to launch the United States' space program. These pioneering female mathematicians and scientists played a crucial role in NASA's early missions. Holt will answer questions and sign books following the reading. We hope to see you there!
The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase.
