Kate Moore, Author of "Radium Girls"

  • CostFree

Radium paint was used to make watches and military dials glow. Moore shares the stories of young women hired to apply the paint who got no warnings or protections for handling the material. Hear about wives, daughters and mothers who sought to protect future workers from suffering their fate as champions for workers’ rights.

Kate Moore has also written several other books, including Scone with the Wind and Roses are Red: A Book for Lovers. Her nonfiction book, Felix the Railway Cat was a Sunday Times bestseller. This event is co-sponsored by Greensboro Bound Literary Festival.
