March Lunchtime Book Discussion @ Derby Public Library

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

In celebration of Women’s History Month, the featured book is “The Other Einstein” by Marie Benedict.  It offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein’s enormous shadow. It is the story of Einstein’s wife, Mileva Mari?a, a brilliant physicist in her own right, whose contribution to the special theory of relativity is hotly debated and may have been inspired by her own profound and very personal insight.  Benedict makes a strong case that the brilliant woman behind Einstein was integral to his success, and creates a rich historical portrait in the process.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulations desk.  Drop-ins are welcome—no registration required. For further information contact the Reference Desk @ 203-736-1482.
