Description:  Novel for June: June by Miranda Beverly-Whitmore
Location: Giovanni’s, Haven, NY
Synopsis from Goodreads: Cassie Danvers, 25, is holed up in her family’s crumbling mansion in rural St. Jude, Ohio, mourning the loss of the woman who raised her: her grandmother, June. A knock on the door forces her out of isolation. Cassie has been named the sole heir to legendary matinee idol Jack Montgomery's vast for-tune. How did J. Montgomery know her name? Could he have crossed paths with her grandmother all those years ago? What other secrets could June’s once-stately mansion hold?
Soon Jack’s famous daughters come knocking, deter-mined to wrestle Cassie away from the inheritance they feel is their due. Together, they all come to discover the true reasons for June’s silence about that long-ago summer, when Hol-lywood came to town, and June and Jack’s lives were forever altered by murder, blackmail, and betrayal.

6:30 PM - 8:30 PMTHE HUB BOOK AND BREW REVIEW



Location:  Location to be announced

Description:  Novel for July: The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict
Location: TBA
Synopsis from Goodreads: A vivid and mesmerizing novel about the extraordinary woman who married and worked with one of the greatest scientists in history. A literary historical in the tradition of The Paris Wife and Mrs. Poe, The Other Ein-stein reveals a complicated partnership that is as fascinating as it is troubling.
What secrets may have lurked in the shadows of Albert Einstein’s fame? His first wife, Mileva “Mitza” Marić, was more than the devoted mother of their three chil-dren—she was also a brilliant physicist in her own right, and her contributions to the special theory of relativity have been hotly debated for more than a century.
In 1896, the extraordinarily gifted Mileva is the only woman studying physics at an elite school in Zürich. There, she falls for charismatic fellow student Albert Einstein, who promises to treat her as an equal in both love and sci-ence. But as Albert’s fame grows, so too does Mileva’s worry that her light will be lost in her husband’s shadow forever.
We don’t really know if Mileva Einstein contributed minimally, significantly, or not at all to the findings that formulated the theory of relativity and ultimately won the Nobel Prize for Albert Einstein. Whether or not Benedict unraveled Mileva’s actual contribution to Einstein’s career precisely does not detract from the reader being totally engrossed in the storyline and characters. The book is an engaging period piece in which Benedict used the historical figures of Mileva and Albert Ein-stein as a take off point to demonstrate their relationship as she imagined it—leaving the reader won-dering if Mileva was the “other” Einstein. Read it and decide for yourself.
