9:00 am - Doors open for seating & continental breakfast • 9:30 am - Author program begins

Audience Q&A and book signing follow program. All of Benedict’s titles available for purchase at event.

Join us for a delicious continental breakfast and the captivating life story of the stunning beauty and famous movie star, who started life in pre-WWII Austria as Hedy Kiesler, before escaping the Nazis for a future in Hollywood, international intrigue, and scientific invention.

Lamarr was one of the most glamorous, Oscar-nominated movie stars of the 1940's. Her greatest legacy, however, may be her groundbreaking yet unsung advances in communications, including technology leading to our modern day cell phones, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth.

THE ONLY WOMAN IN THE ROOM, the fictionalized biography of Lamarr, is the NY Times best-seller from Benedict, author of THE OTHER EINSTEIN, CARNEGIE’S MAID, and her latest book, LADY CLEMENTINE.
