Me: "What was the last book you read that really made you want to bang on the table in awe?"
Her: "'The Great Bridge,' about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, by David McCullough. Great book."
Me: "What's something we don't know about the Brooklyn Bridge that you know now because you read the book?"
Her: "There were fourteen engineers, it took fourteen years to build and they lost only one engineer. They worked together really well."
