Laurie Wallmark
Laurie Wallmark — Grace Hopper, Queen of Computer Code
Saturday, October 21st, 2017 at 2PM — Labyrinth Books Princeton

Acclaimed and beloved children’s book author Laurie Wallmark returns to Labyrinth with the story of Grace Hopper—the boundary-breaking woman who revolutionized computer science. Please join us.
 
Who was Grace Hopper? A software tester, workplace jester, cherished mentor, ace inventor, avid reader, naval leader—AND rule breaker, chance taker, and troublemaker. Acclaimed picture book author Laurie Wallmark once again tells the riveting story of a trailblazing woman. Grace Hopper coined the term “computer bug” and taught computers to “speak English.” Throughout her life, Hopper succeeded in doing what no one had ever done before. Delighting in difficult ideas and in defying expectations, the insatiably curious Hopper truly was “Amazing Grace” . . . and a role model for science- and math-minded girls and boys. With a wealth of witty quotes, and richly detailed illustrations, this book brings Hopper's incredible accomplishments to life.

 

Laurie Wallmark is passionate about getting the word out to young people about successful women in science. She has degrees in Biochemistry from Princeton University, Information Systems from Goddard College, and Writing for Children and Young Adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her debut book was an award winning picture book biography of Ada Byron Lovelace, the world’s first computer programmer,  Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine
