The Big Library Read – the first global eBook club through libraries – is now live with The Other Einstein, by Marie Benedict, until June 26, 2017. Hudson Area Library patrons can borrow the eBook instantly, without being placed on a waitlist.
About The Other Einstein, from Amazon.com:
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.
