- Real Ladies: Typhoid Mary
Allison shares some of what she learned from Terrible Typhoid Mary: A True Story of the Deadliest Cook in America by Susan Campbell Bartoletti, a youth nonfiction book about the Irish immigrant and cook who likely infected more than 50 people with typhoid in the early 20th century. If fictionalized accounts of real events or the lives of real people are your jam and you want to read more about Mary Mallon, Becca recommends Fever by Mary Beth Keane.
