Suppose you ran into a gentleman one day who told you something you didn't know about your mother, something so consequential that the course of American history would have been dramatically altered had she never lived. George Morgan, the author of Rocket Girl: The Story of Mary Sherman Morgan, America's First Female Rocket Scientist
, had this happen to him at her mother's funeral (per the Publishers Weekly
review of his book). This September 2018 selection of the RENEW (Reading Engaging Nonfiction that Expands our Worldview) Book Club describes Mary Sherman Morgan's life and work, and, in doing so, gives credence to the claim her son heard on the day of her burial.
