A Hidden Genius Unfolds in Our Big Library Read

From June 12-26, OverDrive's Big Library Read is back with the eBook format of The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict. 

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. This is the story of 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.

During the Big Library Read, the digital version of this book will be available to all library customers to download for free, with no holds. The Other Einstein can be read on major computers and devices. Like all of our eBooks, it will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees. 

Read a sample of The Other Einstein below, read an interview with the author, or download the reading group guide for more.

On a Beam of Light by Jennifer Berne and Illustrated by Vladimir Radunsky

On a Beam of Light starts with a little boy who barely talked as a child, who got in trouble at school, and who was told he would never amount to anything. That boy was named Albert Einstein.
