Listen to some of Birmingham's finest poets recite work from the soon-to-be-released anthology, Einstein at the Odeon Cafe. Einstein at the Odeon Café offers readers (and listeners) an unexpected look at Einstein's life through verse. Poems portray Einstein, not at the blackboard struggling with his equations, but smoking cigars in a Swiss café, “dreaming always of light.” In a variety of poetic styles, hear about the Einstein who gave up his first daughter Elise for adoption, a daughter who has been lost to history ever since. Wednesday, July 29, noon.
