Crosby Book Club Meets Friday, March 16 at 2 pm

In recognition of Women's History Month, and the birthday of Albert Einstein (March 14), Crosby Book Club will discuss The Other Einstein, by Marie Benedict.  Einstein met his wife, Mileva Maric, when they were students at the elite Zurich Polytechnic, and they married in 1903.  Many have speculated about Maric's purported contributions to the Theory of Special Relativity.  Has Mileva been denied credit for her ideas?  Written from Maric's perspective, the author "aims to tell the story of a brilliant woman whose light has been lost in Albert's enormous shadow".

The public is invited to attend a discussion on Friday, March 16, at 2 pm in the meeting room.
