Williamsburg book club



On Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 7 p.m., we will get together to discuss "Einstein's Dreams" by Alan Lightman. According to Amazon.com:

"A modern classic, Einstein’s Dreams is a fictional collage of stories dreamed by Albert Einstein in 1905, when he worked in a patent office in Switzerland. As the defiant but sensitive young genius is creating his theory of relativity, a new conception of time, he imagines many possible worlds. In one, time is circular, so that people are fated to repeat triumphs and failures over and over. In another, there is a place where time stands still, visited by lovers and parents clinging to their children. In another, time is a nightingale, sometimes trapped by a bell jar.

Now translated into thirty languages, Einstein’s Dreams has inspired playwrights, dancers, musicians, and painters all over the world. In poetic vignettes, it explores the connections between science and art, the process of creativity, and ultimately the fragility of human existence." We hope you'll be able to join us in reading what is likely to be a very interesting short novel, and then meet with friends to discuss what we've read (and also share some treats). Looking forward to seeing you there!
