Andrea Wulf: Chasing Venus

Andrea Wulf, acclaimed author of Chasing Venus: The Race to Measure the Heavens, visited Washington College as a part of the Chestertown Book Festival. In her book, Wulf vividly portrays the battalion of 18th-century scientists who braved hurricanes, tropical disease, pirates, plagues, and war to fan out across the globe and witness a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event.
