The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Kelly. May 2009. Henry Holt.
Charles Darwin shares the same birthdate as Abraham Lincoln; therefore, this year we are celebrating their 200th birthday. I am reviewing a large number of books on evolution and biographies on Darwin, but I made the assumption that The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate was simply about her changing. I had no idea how intricately Kelly was able to intertwine the story of this amazing young woman and the scientific ideas that revolutionized how we view science and origins.
