Book cover for Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

"Jahren 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. Yet at the core of this book is the story of a relationship Jahren forged with Bill, who becomes her lab partner and best friend."  

The meeting will be held in the Library Meeting Room with an option to Zoom in if desired. If you have not attended before, please email askspl [at] to be added to the group's email list.
