At the dawn of modern astronomy, Henrietta Leavitt leaves her home and beloved sister to work in Harvard’s male-driven observatory and map the night sky. She forms a new sisterhood with her fellow star “computers,” Annie and Williamina, and begins to fall in love with her supervisor, Peter Shaw. As Henrietta makes a revolutionary discovery about where the Earth is in time and space, she must fight to be heard in a world where women’s ideas are dismissed until men take credit for them.

A celestial romance and a true story of determination, Lauren Gunderson’s Silent Sky invites you to revel in the magic of the universe on this historic journey of love, family, feminism, and science.
