In celebration of Pi Day, award-winning children’s author Wil Mara will read from his recently published biography of Albert Einstein, part of the DK Life Stories series. The book for young readers ages 8-12 covers Einstein’s family and education, his travels and troubles, and the special compass he was given as a young boy that first set him on the path to questioning the world around him. Books will be available for sale and signing.
A native of Southern New Jersey, Mara has written extensively for children, including “The Story of Civil Rights” from the DK Readers series. He has also written more than 50 titles in the Rookie Biographies and Rookie Read-About series, as well as five titles for the best-selling The Boxcar Children series.
