"Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World"

Aired on Wednesday, August 30th.

Since 2012, the national non-profit organization Girls Who Code has taught computing and computer-programming skills to thousands of girls all across America. Our guest is the CEO and founder of that organization, Reshma Saujani, who has a new book out. This engaging, fully illustrated book, likewise called "Girls Who Code," is aimed at girls 8 and older -- and it is, per School Library Journal, a "timely [and] well-written title [that will be] an excellent resource for budding coders." As Saujani tells us, her book mixes down-to-earth explanations of coding principles with real-life stories of girls and women working at Pixar, NASA, and other notable STEM-driven companies. Also on our show today, commentator Barry Friedman eloquently remembers his friend, Claudette, who recently died of cancer.
