BACK IN STOCK – Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code by Laurie Wallmark Illustrated by Katy Wu


“If you’ve got a good idea, and you know it’s going to work, go ahead and do it.” – Grace Hopper

Grace Hopper dedicated her life to solving computer problems. With her passion for problem-solving and insatiable curiosity, “Amazing Grace” revolutionized computer programming.

Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code is an inspiring, upbeat picture-book biography of one of STEM’s unsung heroes. Did you know Grace originated the term “computer bug”? This beautifully illustrated book follows Grace’s clock-tinkering in childhood to Vassar collegiate life to her long career in the US Navy (she retired as an admiral! At almost 80 years old!).
