Book Reading - July 8

Join author Stephenie Peterson and Boolean Girl
for a book reading and an afternoon of fun!


In Nellie Nova Takes Flight, Nellie appears to be a normal nine-year-old girl. But Nellie is not "normal." Nellie is an amazingly gifted scientist who lives in a family of amazingly gifted scientists. One day, her brother, Niles, who is 11, teases her (as all respectable big brothers do). This time, however, Niles goes too far when he tells Nellie that girls are silly and no woman has ever changed the world. This sets off a spark of an idea in Nellie's most amazing mind and sends her down the path to create a time machine and meet wonderful women who made a mark on the world. First stop, Amelia Earhart! With a few bumps along the way and a government agency out to steal her technology, Nellie and Niles are in for an incredible adventure! Stephenie is extremely passionate about girls in STEM and has agreed to read from her book and talk to the kids a bit about the writing process. Books will be available for purchase.
