Silent Sky
by Lauren Gunderson
NOV 30 - DEC 15, 2018

The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman's place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women's ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. When she starts work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, Henrietta isn't allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women "computers," charting the starts for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in "girl hours" and has no time for the women's probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love.
