Lessons in Chemistry

By Bonnie Garmus | DOUBLEDAY | $29


Elizabeth Zott is a brilliant scientist trying to make it in a man’s world in the 1960s. Out of a job when she gets pregnant, she uses her talent for chemistry to land herself in the unlikelies­t of places—as the beloved host of Supper at Six, an unusual cooking show with a distinctly feminist point of view. Chock-full of historical details and endearing characters, you’ll cheer on Zott and her distinctiv­e show sign-off: “Children, set the table. Your mother needs a moment to herself.”
