 Clinton Book 
Signing Sells Out

It took just an hour and a 
half; after Vroman’s Bookstore 
made the announcement 
that Hillary Rodham Clinton 
would be signing ‘What 
Happened,’ on Dec. 1, for the 
event to completely sell out. 
Organizers said this was fastest 
sellout in the store’s history.

 They said this is a Secret 
Service event and “anyone 
without a ticket will not be 
permitted to line up nor will 
you be allowed in or near the 
event space.”

 According to the bookstore 
staff “‘What Happened,’ is 
about what it was like to run 
against Donald Trump, the 
mistakes she made, how she 
has coped with a shocking 
and devastating loss, and how 
she found the strength to pick 
herself back up afterward. 
With humor and candor, she 
tells readers what it took to get 
back on her feet--the rituals, 
relationships, and reading that 
got her through, and what 
the experience has taught her 
about life. She speaks about the 
challenges of being a strong 
woman in the public eye, 
the criticism over her voice, 
age, and appearance, and the 
double standard confronting 
women in politics.

One City, One Story is‘Rise of the Rocket Girls’ 

Officials announced last week 
that the book selection for 
Pasadena Public Library’s 2018 
One City, One Story community 
reading celebration is the New 
York Times bestselling book 
Rise of the Rocket Girls: The 
Women Who Propelled Us, 
From Missiles to the Moon to 
Mars by author Nathalia Holt.

 Now in its 16th year, One 
City, One Story is designed 
to broaden and deepen an 
appreciation of reading and 
literature by recommending a 
compelling book that sparks 
a community conversation on 
important issues.

 Rise of the Rocket Girls is 
the riveting true story of the 
women who launched America 
into space.

 In the 1940s and 50s, when the 
newly minted Jet Propulsion 
Laboratory needed quick-
thinking mathematicians to 
calculate velocities and plot 
trajectories, they didn’t turn to 
male graduates. Rather, they 
recruited an elite group of 
young women who, with only 
pencil, paper and mathematical 
prowess, transformed rocket 
design, helped bring about the 
first American satellites, and 
made the exploration of the 
solar system possible.

 For the first time, Rise of the 
Rocket Girls tells the stories 
of these women–known as 
“human computers”–who broke 
the boundaries of both gender 
and science. Based on extensive 
research and interviews with all 
the living members of the team, 
Rise of the Rocket Girls offers 
a unique perspective on the 
role of women in science: both 
where we’ve been, and the far 
reaches of space to which we’re 

Nathalia Holt, Ph.D. is a science 
writer and author of Cured: 
The People who Defeated HIV 
(Penguin Random House 2014), 
also a New York Times bestseller. 
Her work has appeared in 
numerous publications, 
including The New York 
Times, The Los Angeles Times, 
The Atlantic, Slate, Popular 
Science and Time. She has 
trained at the Ragon Institute 
of MGH, MIT and Harvard 
University, the University 
of Southern California, and 
Tulane University. She lives 
with her husband and their two 
daughters in Boston, Mass.

 One City, One Story 
community programs will 
be held throughout March, 
beginning with a conversation 
with the author on Thursday 
evening, March 8. 
In March or April, the 
programs begin, with all sorts 
of cooperative sessions being 
offered. There are often book 
discussions throughout the 
community, in churches, stores, 
and libraries. Colleges and 
schools sponsor related events 
like panel discussions, art 
shows, concerts, or lectures.
