Lessons in Chemistry (2022)

Monday, November 7 • 1:00pm-2:15pm • OnlineCourse 11436 • $25

Bonnie Garmus will discuss her debut bestselling novel, Lessons in Chemistry (2022), in conversation with cultural historian Lori Rotskoff. Set in the 1960s, Elizabeth Zott, the book's formidable feminist and idiosyncratic heroine, begins as a brilliant research chemist in a male-dominated field and becomes a single mother and reluctant star of a beloved cooking show. Deftly blending sharp social satire with heartwarming humor, Garmus delivers a self-assured page-turner that tackles the sexism of postwar America from a fresh perspective. Rights have already been optioned for an AppleTV+ limited series. Time will be reserved for Q&A.

This special event will be recorded and made available to all registered students for one week.

BONNIE GARMUS is a copywriter and creative director who has worked widely in the fields of technology, medicine, and education. Lessons in Chemistry, a New York Times bestseller, is her debut novel. Inspired by her own frustrations at work – the sexism, the misogyny, and the bizarre lack of diversity – Lessons in Chemistry is the result of six years of writing and deep research into chemistry, cooking, and the culture of the mid-twentieth century.
