The Big Library Read is Back!

Join us June 12 through June 26, 2017 for another Big Library Read! This time, the book is The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict. Get your eCopy at OverDrive, or place a hold on a paper copy!

The Other Einstein

Mileva “Mitza” Marić 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.

Read the book, listen to an interview with the author, and then join the book club discussion!

Along the way, please share your thoughts on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, and don't forget to tag #biglibraryread and #sjplbiglibraryread.


So glad to see the return of the Big Read. It reminds me of the online book club we attempted when I headed up the library's centralized programming unit. I believe that programs such as this and SVR encourage us to broaden our horizons by reading books we might not have otherwise discovered.
