3/15/17 The Taste of Death by Carla Killough McClafferty. The radium girls licked their brushes to keep them sharp as they painted clock faces for a living. They even painted their nails with the radium paint for a bit of fun. Carla McClafferty tells you the high price they paid.
3/16/17 Edmonia's Statues by Cheryl Harness. Edmonia Lewis is a sculptor who you've probably not heard of. When Cheryl Harness shows you her glorious work. you'll be very surprised about the artist's background and where and when she sculpted.
