This giveaway is sponsored by The Radium Girls by Kate Moore.
The Curies’ newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War.
Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories—the glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe. With such a coveted job, these “shining girls” are the luckiest alive – until they begin to fall mysteriously ill. As the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in a groundbreaking battle for workers’ rights that will echo for centuries to come.
