Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, The Radium Girls fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the “wonder” substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations, research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives. We will meet on July 6 to discuss book.
All are welcome: students, emerging designers, educators, seasoned professionals. Come even if you are not able to finish the book. Bring book suggestions for our next read. We hope to select books that resonate with Virginia designers through sense of place, depth of human understanding, process of design, or application to business.
