Claire L. Evans, author of Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet, will discuss her book.

Sunday, March 29 from 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM at


“Fascinating and often moving, Broad Band sheds light on the true stories of women who pioneered crucial technological and social leaps throughout the history of computing. Much like the dedicated female mathematicians in Hidden Figures, the women in Broad Band solved new and complex technical problems while also dealing with stifling social mores that kept them marginalized in the writing of the “official” history. Author and VICE reporter Claire L. Evans relates these stories with a candor and humor that matches the relentless spirit of the subjects. Broad Band is an inspiring and timely read for anyone interested in the digital world.” Presented with Friends of Milpitas Library.
