Book Group Discussion - All invited!
Book Group meets at 7:30 pm on the third Friday of the month in the church library.
The book for Friday, January 20 is The Radium Girls by Kate Moore.
During the First World War, radium makes headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. The popular new element shines bright. Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these "shining girls" are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill. And, until they begin to come forward.
As the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America's early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers' rights that will echo for centuries to come. (From: Barnes and Noble)
