Code Girls Book Talk with Author Liza Mundy
Thursday, November 15 at 6:00 pm
Reynolda House Museum of American Art, 2250 Reynolda Rd, Winston-Salem

More than 10,000 women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington, D.C. and learned the meticulous work of codebreaking. Their efforts shortened the war and saved countless lives, but a strict vow of secrecy nearly erased their efforts from history—until now. New York Times bestselling author Liza Mundy will discuss and read from her new book Code Girls. This Reynolda House event is presented with Bookmarks and copies of Code Girls will be available through Bookmarks for purchase and author signing.

Admission by ticket only: Entry is $8 for members, $10 for non-members, and free for students. For more information, visit: http://reynoldahouse.org/


Did You Just Eat That? Food Science Discussion
Thursday, November 15 at 6:30 pm
Bookmarks, 634 W. Fourth Street #110, Winston-Salem, NC

Food scientists Brian Sheldon and Paul Dawson have written a fun and innovative new book called Did You Just Eat That? Two Scientists Explore Double-Dipping, the Five-Second Rule, and Other Food Myths in the Lab. It questions (in gruesome scientific detail) the gross-out factor of spa water with cucumbers, electric hand dryers, blowing out the candles on a birthday cake, double-dipping your chips, and the microbe-content of restaurant menus, among other small terrors.  Colorfully illustrated with infographics, charts, and other images, this book and its authors take you into their labs to show you everything you ever wanted to know (and a number of things you didn’t) about food science and the five-second rule.  Sheldon is professor emeritus in food microbiology at North Carolina State University, and Dawson is a professor at Clemson University.
