Announcing the 2022 Featured Book for Lake Forest Reads

Lake Forest Reads, our One Book, One Community program, returns this fall! We are pleased to announce this year’s selection:

"Her Hidden Genius" by Marie Benedict

Marie Benedict’s powerful new novel shines a light on a woman who sacrificed her life to discover the nature of our DNA, a woman whose world-changing contributions were hidden by the men around her but whose relentless drive advanced our understanding of humankind.

Stay tuned for details on book‑related events and discussions in the fall. Mark your calendars now for the premier author event, An Evening with Marie Benedict, on Thursday, October 13, 2022.
