Cottage Book Club: The Other Einstein

The Cottage Book Club of “mostly mature” adult (when we have to be) women (although not necessarily required) welcomes everyone, whether or not they have read the book. We’re friendly, of all ages, love to laugh and sometimes cry. We talk strictly about the book, and afterwards, a little about the author. Karen Langs is the facilitator and begins discussion with a general question. “One comment at a time, please."

The group meets the first and third Wednesdays of every month at 10:00 a.m. for an hour, more or less. The Cottage Book Club meets year round and is open to anyone who wishes to join for a day or a season.

"The Other Einstein takes you into Mileva's heart, mind, and study as she tries to forge a place for herself in a scientific world dominated by men."-Bustle

In the tradition of The Paris Wife and Mrs. Poe, The Other Einstein offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein's enormous shadow. It 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.

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.
