Best of the Book Nook: Galileo's Daughter, by Dava Sobel


The astronomer Galileo had a daughter and they were very close. She lived a fairly cloistered life because she was a nun but she did keep a diary. The author Dava Sobel mined her diary entries to fashion a truly exquisite book. This has been Dava Sobel's only appearance on the program to date. What a pleasure it was to have a conversation with someone who is so articulate and who has such a fine mind.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
