Science communicator and author, Liz Heinecke, will discuss her book Radiant: The Dancer, The Scientist, and a Friendship Forged in Light. Part hidden history, part love letter to creative innovation, Heinecke’s book tells the true story of an unlikely friendship between the American dancer Loie Fuller and the scientist Marie Curie, who were brought together by an illuminating discovery in the City of Light at the turn of the twentieth century. The event will conclude with time for Q&A as well as a book signing. We hope you will join us!
