Two local poets talk history, science, and identity. Kim Roberts is the author of The Scientific Method, which explores Roberts’ tangled history of science, Washington, D.C., and being Jewish in the nation’s capital. Molly McCully Brown’s collection The Virginia State Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded imagines what her life with cerebral palsy may have been like if she had been born during the height of the eugenics and sterilization movement in Virginia, and gives voice to the women who were.
