Lab Girl

By Hope Jahren 

Join fellow Wauwatosa residents for this year’s All-City Read, featuring Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. Geobiologist, Hope Jahren, has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds and soil. Lab Girl is her inspiring treatise on plant life – – but is also a celebration of her lifelong curiosity and passion that drives every scientist.

Hope takes us back to her Minnesota childhood, where she spent hours in unfettered play in her father’s college laboratory. She tells us how she found a sanctuary in science, learning to perform lab work “with both the heart and hands.”  Lab Girl vividly demonstrates the mountains we can move when love and work come together.

The library has purchased multiple copies of Lab Girl, so please check out CountyCat to reserve your copy.
