FALLBROOK – Writers Read will present George Morgan and his biography "Rocket Girl: The Story of Mary Sherman Morgan, America’s First Female Rocket Scientist" on Tuesday, May 13, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., in the Fallbrook Library community room.

Morgan is the playwright in residence at California Institute of Technology, in Pasadena. "Rocket Girl," which followed his play of the same name, reveals the unusual and formerly secret story of his mother, a young woman who found herself in the competitive male world of rocket fuel science, while the United States competed with Germany and the Soviet Union. "Rocket Girl" will be available at the reading for sale and signing.

The author’s presentation is preceded by open mic, and members of the public are invited to bring their original poetry and short prose to read. Short prose is a maximum of five minutes reading time.

The Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Road.
