SILENT SKY |
Sept 9-18

The true story of nineteenth-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt. Explore a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications.
