Join us virtually to discuss "The Only Woman in the Room" by Marie Benedict.

About this month's title:

Her beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer. Underestimated in everything else, she overheard the Third Reich's plans while at her husband's side, understanding more than anyone would guess. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood. She became Hedy Lamarr, screen star. But she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis...if anyone would listen to her.

A limited number of physical copies of the selected title are available in advance at the Belt Branch for check out. This selection is also available digitally on the library's Overdrive app.

This program is for adults 18+. Discussion will be held virtually via Zoom. Advance registration required; meeting details will be e-mailed the day before the program.
