You’ve never seen Einstein like this! Corinne Maier and Anne Simon’s graphic novel explores the life of the most influential physicist of all time. This biography features a caricature version of Einstein, who narrates and comments on the story of his life.

In conjunction with the exhibition The Einstein Salon and Innovators Gallery, the Historical Society is thrilled to host the illustrator, Anne Simon, at the Updike Farmstead museum, 354 Quaker Road, on Thursday, October 6 at 5 PM. Ms. Simon will share the steps of her artistic process to create her “own” Einstein.

In addition, at 4 pm, a pre-talk conservation will be broadcast live on the official Albert Einstein Facebook page. The video will also be available online for later viewing.

Free, with book signing to follow. Labyrinth Books will be on site to sell copies of Einstein.

ANNE SIMON was born in 1980 in France. She studied in the Beaux-Arts in Angoulême, and then in the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, one of the most prestigious art schools in France. In 2004, she received the “New Talent” prize at the Angoulême festival, and she released her first comic book Persephone in the Underworld in 2006.
