Join us for a discussion of Radium Girls:The Dark Story of America's Shining Women
by Kate Moore. During the dark years of World War I, the element radium, discovered in 1898 by the Curies, made headlines as a wonder drug and a cosmetic component. Young women toiled in the radium-dial factories, often returning home while glowing in the dark. These shining girls soon began to fall seriously ill as the fatal poison of the radium took its toll. They soon became embroiled in one of the most scandalous episodes of the 20th Century, fighting for worker rights in almost impossible circumstances.

David takes us from the gulf's formation to the exploration by the conquistadors to the present environmental disasters. The WSJ says The Gulf is "by turns informative, lyrical, inspiring, and chilling for anyone who cares about the future of America's Sea."
