The Radium Girls: Discussion Thread #7

I’m announcing and rolling out the full schedule of the next books soon, thanks so much for voting, you have until Monday midday to vote, there’s still a few books on the bubble.

That being said, given its prohibitive lead in the poll the next book will be The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power by Deirdre Mask, grab a copy when you can!

For now, we’re reading The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women. If you have your hands on a copy, this week we wanted to read up to the end of Chapter 53.

For next week, we’ll read to the end, and I’ll announce the schedule moving forward as we switch to every other week.

We’re coming to the end of the legal fight for the women trying to get restitution from Radium Dial. How did you feel about the legal decisions and proceedings this time? How did you view the role of the press?
