Mission Possible: True Grit–Then and Now (The Wright Brothers by David McCullough and Lab Girl by Hope Jahren)
The Wright Brothers’ determination to change history with their “flying machine” was unparalleled. Hope Jahren’s unwavering dedication to unlocking the wondrous “machines” of plants and trees is eye-opening and inspiring. In her new dramatic book review, Jenny brings these two amazing books to life. As Katherine Wright, Jenny shows Katherine’s steadfast devotion to her brilliant brothers, the positive influence of their close-knit family, and her brothers’ gifts of ingenuity, patience, and determination. As Hope Jahren, Jenny shares Hope’s remarkable journey to become a scientist, her single-minded dedication to her work, and her passion for revealing, in poetic and astonishing descriptions, the secret lives of plants. You will never look at a tree the same way again!
