Let's make the new book about Hedy Lamarr our first online book club title. Why? It has great reviews and there are unlimited copies available via the library's HOOPLA account. Go to www.hoopladigital.com and either sign in if you repreviously registered or register a new account. You'll need your library card number and pin. If you don't know you pin, you can reset it here: https://countycat.mcfls.org/pinreset~S1

If you encounter problems, email afantetti@greendale.org

I'll post again later with questions to lead the discussion.

Sincerely, Allison

---------------------------------------------------------------------
She possessed a stunning beauty. She also possessed a stunning mind. Could the world handle both?

Her beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer. Underestimated in everything else, she overheard the Third Reich's plans while at her husband's side, understanding more than anyone would guess. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood. She became Hedy Lamarr, screen star.

But 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.

We hate being closed too. But what we want is everyone to be safe and healthy. So let's try and make some lemonade out of lemons!
