The Only Woman in the Room | Marie Benedict


A well-written portrait that captures the resilience of Hedy Lamarr. Stretching from the 1930s in Austria to the 1940s in America, we are given a look at a written photo album of her amazing life and what she may have experienced in those moments. Benedict definitely gives respect to Miss Lamar by the words she chooses.

Seth Turner was the former manager at The Book Market, our bookstore in Glenview, where he began working in 2014. His favorite book is "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien. "This book has a special place in my heart. It was my first introduction in fantasy. I still have my father’s special edition that he gave to me as a gift."
