Waiting on the new book by Bonnie Garmus?
Hey there, Waitlisters!
The new book by Bonnie Garmus, Lessons in Chemistry, had this library blogger crying both happy and sad tears through the whole read! With 59 patrons waiting in our queue, I’m here to give you a few options to keep you busy while you wait for this amazing story!
Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, she would be the first to point out that there is no such thing as an average woman. But it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team takes a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel–prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with—of all things—her mind.
But like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later Elizabeth finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America’s most beloved cooking show Supper at Six. However, as it turns out, Elizabeth isn’t just teaching women to cook. She’s daring them to change the status quo.
Funny, shrewdly observant, and studded with a dazzling cast of supporting characters, Lessons in Chemistry is as original and vibrant as its protagonist.
