Faculty Lauren Redniss publishes new book and opens exhibition at the New York Public Library

Written by:


A professor in the Illustration program, Lauren Redniss just published her new book, Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, A Tale of Love and Fallout, which explores the marriage and discoveries of the famous scientific couple. The book is a visual biography which is able to capture the “invisible forces” of love and radioactivity. Redniss was a Fellow at the Library’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers in 2008–09, where she worked on this book.

The exhibition at the New York Public Library traces a library researcher’s creative process—offering just one example of the many ways in which the NYPL treasures inspire fresh ideas, scholarship, and art.

She also discussed her book in a fascinating interview with Melissa Block on NPR’s All Things Considered. Listen/read here.
