Author Talk with Marie Benedict

September 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Join author Marie Benedict as she discusses her acclaimed new novel, “The Only Woman in the Room.” She will also explore the common theme throughout all her books – women who play pivotal roles in history but go unnoticed. In her most recent work of historical fiction, Benedict looks at the remarkable life of Austrian-born American film actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr. The New York Times raves, “[Benedict is] a novelist who’s made a career writing about ‘the only woman in the room’… In Benedict’s telling, the story is a ready-made thriller as well as a feminist parable.” A reception and book-signing will immediately follow the event.
