Don’t miss this lively discussion focusing on Ms. Olsson’s stirring memoir-biography, The Weil Conjectures, which eloquently explores math as it relates to intellectual history. In it, she tells the poignant story of the brilliant Weil siblings: Simone, a philosopher, mystic and social activist, and André, the influential mathematician. Ms. Olsson is a senior editor at Farrar, Straus and Giroux and a Harvard graduate with a degree in Mathematics.
Ms. Pollack’s award-winning nonfiction book, Woman Walking Ahead: In Search of Catherine Weldon and Sitting Bull, was adapted into a major motion picture. An excerpt from her investigative memoir, The Only Woman in the Room: Why Science Is Still a Boys’ Club, was published in The New York Times Magazine and went viral. Ms. Pollack’s most recent novel The Professor of Immortality intimately examines a woman’s struggle to be a good mom as grief impacts her perception of the world. Her work has appeared in Best American Essays and Best American Short Stories. She is a Yale graduate with a BS in Physics.
