Local author, Diane Lincoln, will be reading from her book "Science Discovery Files: 10 Forgotten Stories of Incredible Scientists."

In honor of Women's History Month, local author Diane Lincoln will be reading two excerpts from her book, "Science Discovery Files: 10 Forgotten Stories of Incredible Scientists."  The excerpts will focus on Florence Nightingale, a nurse who saved countless lives during and after the Crimean War and Henrietta Leavitt, a woman who struggled with hearing loss and determined how far stars are from Earth.  

"Diane Lincoln is a former middle school science teacher who taught university classes in the evening.  She is currently a science writer specializing in online media.  This book appeals to all readers interested in stories about people who made important contributions to science.  Stories include that of Daniel Hale Williams, the black surgeon who performed the first successful open-heart surgery in the United States, Mario Molina, the Mexican-American chemist who persuaded governments around the world to ban dangerous chemicals that he discovered were destroying the environment, and Henrietta Leavitt, the deaf woman who opened up the heavens to modern cosmology by determining the location of distant stars."
