About the Event
ur next read “THE ONLY WOMAN IN THE ROOM” by Marie Bennett, which is a fictionalized history based story of Hedy Lemar. If you will remember we previously read another of her books “Carnegie's Maid”. The book can be purchased on Amazon for $9.00 Kindle, hard cover $13.98 or paperback for $9.60. The next meeting is planned for Tuesday, November 16th at 7:00 in the Chapel. Here is the synopsis provided by Amazon: 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 and understood 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 had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis and revolutionize modern communication...if anyone would listen to her.
A powerful book based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist, The Only Woman in the Room is a masterpiece that celebrates the many women in science that history has overlooked.
