Silent Sky

Silent Sky

Highly theatrical and beautifully told, Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson opens our Season of Wonder. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores the idea that social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.
