You've packed the house before for Pittsburgh's own Marie Benedict. Come pack it again!
New York Times bestselling author Marie Benedict is joining here, in her hometown of Pittsburgh, once again to celebrate the release of the latest book in her series of novels uncovering the lives of over-looked women in history. Her previous titles, including Carnegie's Maid and The Personal Librarian, have been bestsellers both for us here at Riverstone Books and nationally. We can't wait to learn about the latest historical figure she's brought to life: Rosalind Frank, the brilliant British scientist who discovered the structure of DNA but whose research was used without her permission by Crick and Watson to win the Nobel Prize.
If you've read Marie's previous books you know how vividly and emotionally she writes about these forgotten figures, and you won't want to miss her this time around. If you haven't, take our word for it, and come find out for yourself!
