LIKE WATER ON STONE
an author talk by Dr. Dana Walrath

Blending magical realism and lyrical free verse, this historical fiction novel is an intense survival story of three siblings caught up in the horrific events of the Armenian genocide of 1915. Dr. Walrath will speak about her experiences in Armenia as a Fulbright Scholar, her travels to Western Armenia in 1984, and how these journeys influenced Like Water on Stone.


MONDAY, APRIL 11
Buena Vista Branch
7:00 p.m.


RISE OF THE ROCKET GIRLS
an author talk by Nathalia Holt
In the 1940s and ‘50s, when the Jet Propulsion Laboratory needed quick-thinking mathematicians to calculate velocities and plot trajectories, they recruited an elite group of young women who, with only pencil, paper, and mathematical prowess, transformed rocket design, helped bring about the first American satellites, and made the exploration of the solar system possible. Hear their story! In addition to the author, one of the Rocket Girls will be a special guest!


THURSDAY, APRIL 14
Buena Vista Branch
6:30 p.m.
