It may not take a rocket scientist to write a fascinating and inspiring memoir, but Sylvia Acevedo is one anyway — and more. She’s also the current CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA, and she comes to Tattered Cover to shares the story of her life as a Latina woman who owes her success in part to Scouts. Acevedo will read from and sign her memoir, Path to the Stars: My Journey From Girl Scout to Rocket Scientist.

Details available online.
