Enchantress of numbers :

a novel of Ada Lovelace

by Jennifer Chiaverini

Wednesday, December 23rd

10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. via Zoom

Books available at the Circulation Desk starting November 18, 2020. eBooks and audiobooks available through the Overdrive/Live-brary link on our website.

 

The only legitimate child of Lord Byron, the most brilliant, revered, and scandalous of the Romantic poets, Ada was destined for fame long before her birth. But her mathematician mother, estranged from Ada's infamous and destructively passionate father, is determined to save her only child from her perilous Byron heritage. Banishing fairy tales and make-believe from the nursery, Ada’s mother provides her daughter with a rigorous education grounded in mathematics and science. Any troubling spark of imagination—or worse yet, passion or poetry—is promptly extinguished. Or so her mother believes.
