The Big Library Read is here!

Big Library Read is the first-ever “global eBook club,” connecting people around the world who read the same eBook (or listen to the audiobook) at the same time! The new selection is The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict!BLROtherEinstein


Here’s a quick summary from the publisher:

Mitza Maric was always a little different from other girls. Most twenty-year-olds would be married with childrenby 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 they form a partnership of the mind and the heart. But there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage … The Other Einstein offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Albert Einstein’s enormous shadow.


June 12-26, 2017, unlimited copies of the book are available for checkout through OverDrive! Just visit Delco.Overdrive.com (you’ll need a Delaware County Library System card for this one), and borrow the Big Library Read today! BigLibraryRead.jpg
