Join us for a discussion of Radiant: The Dancer, The Scientist, and a Friendship Forged in Light by Liz Heinecke, which explores the real-life friendship of Loie Fuller and Marie Curie, in anticipation of the author's presentation at Hinsdale Library on June 28th. Copies of the book are available to check out at the Library on the Book Club Holds shelf.
Loie Fuller was born at the Castle Inn in then-Fullersburg, IL in 1862. Known for her innovative choreography, Loie danced in Chicago and across the country before making her Paris debut in 1892 where she became arguably the most famous dancer in the world. Now, 160 years since her birth, Loie's hometown of Hinsdale celebrates her life with a series of events sponsored by the Hinsdale Public Library, Hinsdale Historical Society, Fullersburg Foundation, and District 181 Foundation.
