For February 7: The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women by Kate Moore. This is the story of hundreds of young, vibrant women who were sentenced to death by their employers. The so-called “Radium Girls” painted luminescent faces on clock and watch dials using a paint mixture that contained radium. The company refused to take responsibility for the resulting, horrific health effects. Co-sponsored by the Niles-Maine District Library.
