Learn about the role of women in astronomy with the History Book Group

History enthusiasts are encouraged to join an engaging discussion of important topics of the past at the History Book Group.

The group meets one Thursday per month at 4 p.m. to discuss the month’s selection.

For the next meeting, the group is talking about “The Glass Universe: How the Ladies of the Harvard Observatory Took the Measure of the Stars” by Dava Sobel on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at the Manomet Branch Library, 12 Strand Avenue. Sobel examines the impact of women “calculators” in the field of astronomy and the accomplishments of future women astronomers.
