On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein
Jennifer Berne Born in New York City. A great place to grow up. Spent endless hours and days in the zoos, the Museum of Natural History and the Planetarium. (At night, in my bedroom, I had a little blue plastic globe with a light in it that projected stars on the ceiling, so I brought the wonders of the Planetarium home with me.) I began to write about the universe I had always loved.
