Real People/Real Stories: A Nonfiction Book Group

August 18 @ 2:00 pm

Free

Real People/Real Stories explores the best in nonfiction history, biography, science, nature, and the arts.

Join us as we discuss The Doctors Blackwell by Janice P. Nimura.

Admitted to medical school as a joke and barred from lectures, Elizabeth Blackwell persisted to become the first woman in America to receive an MD, in 1849. Her younger sister Emily, following in her footsteps, helped found the first hospital staffed entirely by women. This dual biography explores the lives and legacy of these complicated pioneers in the fast-changing world of 19th-century medicine.
