Mr. Olear will kindly provide lunch this month.

Eclectic Book Club

The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

Tuesday, November 20 at 2:00 pm

Einstein's wife, 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. Mitza Maric has always been a little different from other girls. Most twenty-year-olds are wives by now, not studying physics at an elite Zurich university with only male students trying to outdo her clever calculations. But Mitza is smart enough to know that, for her, math is an easier path than marriage. And then fellow student Albert Einstein takes an interest in her, and the world turns sideways. Theirs becomes a partnership of the mind and of the heart, but there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage.

Call 332-4375 for more information.

Brighton Place Library will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. We will be open on Friday, November 23 and Saturday, November 24. Gobble, gobble!
