OverDrive Big Library Read

by Marina

OverDrive‘s next Big Library Read (BLR) starts on Monday, June 12. For the next two weeks there will be no-wait checkouts 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. –from the publisher

Touted as the first global eBook club, OverDrive facilitates BLR forums for discussion on the book as a way to connect millions of readers around the globe. The author, Marie Benedict, will be participating in the discussions and there is also an interview with her by the Professional Book Nerds.

Check-out and download your copy today. And join in the online discussion through June 26.

In case you’re curious about any of the past Big Library Reads, OverDrive has an archive of the titles.
