Monday Morning Salvage: January 9, 2017

Flotsam (what we’re obsessed with right now)

Jetsam (what we’re enjoying from around the web)

Lagan (what we’re reading from the peer-reviewed literature)

Driftwood (what we’re reading on dead trees)

  • Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. I’m way late to this party, but Hope Jahren’s memoir about a life in science is equal parts insightful, hilarious, and powerful.
  • Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls by  Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo. This was the winning holiday gift for my nieces this year, a collection of 50 short stories featuring incredible women throughout history with original artwork to go with them. Team Ocean will recognize some familiar faces.

Derelicts (favorites from the deep archive)

Feel free to share your own Flotsam, Jetsam, Lagan, Driftwood, and Derelicts in the comments below. And, of as always, if you enjoy Southern Fried Science, consider contributing to my Patreon campaign to help us keep the servers humming.
