Interview with Toronto author Laura Alary about her picture book The Astronomer Who Questioned Everything (Maria Mitchell)

Years later, when it was time for her to apply to university, she chose Vassar College because she remembered that Maria Mitchell had once taught there, and she figured it would be a welcoming place for women in science. I love this because it shows how powerful a book can be in the life of a child. Read my Q&A with Toronto author Laura Alary.
