Marie Curie: A Quest For Light
Marie Curie's exceptional life and groundbreaking research changed the world, expanding scientific understanding and creating new opportunities for women, as explored in this lavishly illustrated graphic biography endorsed by the Curie Estate. Curie's unique drive—against all odds—to understand Nature's ways and laws led to groundbreaking discoveries, which revolutionized medical theory and practice. She was the first female Nobel Prize winner and, to date, the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two categories: first physics and later in chemistry. Marie Curie: A Quest For Light presents a special collaboration between two internationally acclaimed Danish scientists, Frances Andreasen Østerfelt and Anja Cetti Andersen, and features delightful illustration by the prize-winning Polish artist Anna Blaszczyk. Together they have made Curie's fascinating story accessible to young readers.
