Lessons in Chemistry Book Club Kit

“It’s the world versus Elizabeth Zott, an extraordinary woman determined to live on her own terms, and I had no trouble choosing a side. . . . A page-turning and highly satisfying tale: zippy, zesty, and Zotty.”–Maggie Shipstead, bestselling author of Great Circle

Get ready to meet Elizabeth Zott! Your book group is in for a treat! This Good Morning America Book Club pick has it all: one of the best dogs in literature, a side of romance, and an incomparable protagonist whose deadpan wit, scientific worldview, and determination will have you rooting for her from page one. It’s the 1960s and Elizabeth is making it on her own terms, whether as a chemist at a male-dominated research institute or as a single mother who takes a job as a TV cooking show host in order to make ends meet. She refuses to compromise, teaching chemistry instead of reading cue cards and wearing tight dresses, and in doing so inspires a generation of women to change their own lives.

Not only will you laugh out loud, your book group will find plenty to dig into. Use our Book Club Kit to guide your discussion and set the mood with a playlist and recipes. Pass the sucrose and 40 percent ethanol in H2O, light your Bunsen burners and get started.
