An author will talk about her award-winning book during a visit to Yatton.

Kate Moore will discuss her work on The Radium Girls which tells the story of a group of women in 1920s America who worked in factories painting luminous paint onto dials of clocks and electrical instruments, not knowing the paint they used was killing them.

It contained radium and their prolonged use of this paint shortened their lives considerably.

The book tells of their fight for justice after their employer denied all responsibility and contains elements of a medical mystery, a courtroom drama and a horror story.

There will be an opportunity to talk to Kate and to buy a copy of the book from Clevedon’s Books on the Hill at the event.

Kate will be at Yatton Library from 7.30pm on April 11.
