We’re excited to announce that Marie Benedict will be on tour in January 2019 to celebrate her new release The Only Woman in the Room.
Her most anticipated novel yet, The Only Woman in the Room (9781492666868; January 15, 2019), is a powerful, illuminating historical fiction about Hedy Lamarr. Hedy Lamarr’s marriage to an Austrian arms dealer, her escape from the rising Nazi party, and her rise to fame as a screen star are just the beginning. She kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis…if anyone would listen to her.
A powerful novel based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist whose groundbreaking invention revolutionized modern communication, The Only Woman in the Room is a masterpiece. Marie herself is a dynamic, engaging speaker, touching on her thorough research on Hedy Lamarr and painting a vivid portrait of the historical period.
