Curious Discoveries About Marie Curie--An Interview With Lauren Redniss
Marie Curie was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry 100 years ago. She was the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize, the first person to win two Nobel Prizes, and the first woman to become a professor at Paris's famed Sorbonne University. To find out more about Marie Curie, NYPL News spoke to Lauren Redniss, a former Fellow of the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, who recently published Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, A Tale of Love and Fallout--a visual and written exploration of Marie Curie's life. Redniss currently has a show at the Library featuring luminous cyanotypes from the book alongside images that inspired her from the NYPL collections.
