Description

Please book your Free ticket and join us to hear best-selling author Kate Moore talk about 'The Radium Girls' - a true story about the American women poisoned by the radium paint they worked with and their fight for justice.

During the First World War, teenage girls flocked to work in the new radium-dial studios. As the years passed, the women began to suffer from mysterious and crippling illnesses, but their employers denied all responsibility. So these courageous women – in the face of unimaginable suffering – became determined to fight back, launching a
ground-breaking battle for workers’ rights and scientific recognition that still resonates today. By turns heartbreaking, enraging and inspiring, it is an unputdownable and intimate narrative you will never forget.

They were supposed to go out with a whimper...
They chose to go out with a BANG

Kate Moore is the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The Radium Girls. A British writer based in London, she has published numerous Sunday Times bestsellers and her work has been translated into more than 12 languages.
