Double Parent Book Review: March 29

Due to the most recent snowfall, we had to cancel our Book Review scheduled for last night. As we don’t want to miss out on discussing Remarkably Bright Creatures, we’ve decided to reschedule and add another book to the roster in the meantime. Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus comes highly recommended for you to enjoy between now and the first week back from March Break. We plan to gather to discuss both books on Wednesday, March 29th at 7:00 pm in the Senior School Library … a double header of sorts!
Best-selling debut author Bonnie Garmus has created Elizabeth Zott, a research chemist battling a sexist 1950s and 60s establishment, as the role model she craved — and found that readers wanted the same. 

Named 2022 Book of the Year by Barnes & Noble, please don't judge this book by its cover. “All’s fair in love and chemistry. It’s 1960s California and there are certain things that women just don’t do. When scientist Elizabeth Zott finds herself the host of a television cooking show, she kicks off a revolution that does more than just challenge the status quo.”

We cannot wait to discuss this book with you! As one reviewer wrote, “It is utterly unputdownable!” Kindly let us know in advance if you are able to join us so that we can plan for numbers. Happy reading!
