Greater Pittsburgh Chapter: WEN Book Group Meetup

Greater Pittsburgh Chapter: WEN Book Group Meetup
Join us for our July WEN Book Group Meetup! We will be discussing our June Book Selection: The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict.

About the book: The Other Einstein offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein's enormous shadow. It is the story of Mitza Maric, 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.

About the Author: Marie Benedict is a lawyer with more than ten years' experience as a litigator at two of the country's premier law firms, who found her calling unearthing the hidden historical stories of women. Her mission is to excavate from the past the most important, complex, and fascinating women of history and bring them into the light of present-day where we can finally perceive the breadth of their contributions as well as the insights they bring to modern-day issues.

She is a graduate of Upper St. Clair High School in Pittsburgh, Boston College, and Boston University School of Law, and currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pa. Her success with her first novel, The Chrysalis, prompted a career change to writing full-time.

Marie Benedict will be attending the final portion of our Virtual Meetup! Join our Facebook WEN Book Group, where you can submit questions you may have for her; the deadline for question submission is June 26.
