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 ground-breaking 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.
Authorized by the Curie Estate, Marie Curie: A Quest For Light presents a special collaboration between author Frances Andreasen Østerfelt; the internationally acclaimed Danish astrophysicist Anja Cetti Andersen; and features delightful illustration by artist Anna Blasczcwyk. Together they have made Curie’s fascinating story accessible to young readers.
