Posted on: 2021-03-01
What: Author Jill Cantor in conversation with Marie Benedict
Where: Virtual Event, Avon Free Public Library
When: Wednesday, March 31 at 2:00 pm
Join us for a wonderful afternoon: Author Jill Cantor in conversation with Marie Benedict!
Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you took one path over another? If you walked left instead of right down that road? That is what USA Today bestselling author Jillian Cantor explores in her new novel Half Life (Harper Perennial; on-sale: March 23, 2021). This reimagining of the pioneering, passionate life of Marie Curie uses parallel narratives to illuminate how one choice could change not only the course of Marie’s life but also that of science, history, and the world.
About the authors:
Jillian Cantor has a BA in English from Penn State University and an MFA from the University of Arizona. She is the author of award-winning and bestselling novels for teens and adults, including THE HOURS COUNT, MARGOT, and THE LOST LETTER, which was a USA Today Bestseller. IN ANOTHER TIME, her latest historical novel, was a March 2019 Indie Next pick. Born and raised in a suburb of Philadelphia, Cantor currently lives in Arizona with her husband and two sons.
Marie Benedict is a lawyer with more than ten years' experience as a litigator at two of the country’s premier law firms, who found her calling unearthing the hidden historical stories of women. Her mission is to excavate from the past the most important, complex and fascinating women of history and bring them into the light of present-day where we can finally perceive the breadth of their contributions as well as the insights they bring to modern day issues. Her latest release is The Mystery of Mrs. Christie.
