In her intensely researched, inventively drawn exploration of Marie Curie's life, artist Alice Milani follows the celebrated Polish scientist from Curie's time as a struggling governess to her years in France making breakthrough discoveries. Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences. With skill and care, Milani traces Curie's flight from Russia-controlled Poland, her romance with fellow scientist Pierre Curie, and Marie and Pierre's stunning discoveries of the elements radium and polonium. Throughout this distinctive graphic work, Curie defies doubt and double standards to make an enduring impact on the scientific world.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Alice MilaniPublisher: Graphic Universe (Tm)Published: 08/06/2019ISBN: 9781541572867Pages: 208Weight: 1.45lbsSize: 9.90h x 7.90w x 0.60dReview Citations: Library Journal 06/01/2019 pg. 98School Library Journal 07/01/2019 pg. 61
