Sisters in Science: Marie Curie, Bronia Dluska, and the Atomic Power of Sisterhood

Marie Curie has long been a well-known name around the world. Though Marie made extraordinary scientific advances discovering new elements with her husband, Pierre, many students do not know about the powerful bond that propelled her into science: her sisterhood with Bronia! A force in academia and health care herself, Bronia made significant contributions to the scientific world, along with her loving support of sister Marie.

Discover the fascinating true story of two sisters and trailblazing women who worked together and made a legendary impact on chemistry and health care as we know it. Sisters in Science is a compelling dual biography of women who created their own paths while keeping the atomic bonds of sisterhood strong.

Description

"The story delves into Marie’s accomplishments but never strays far from Bronia, showing how these two lives consistently informed and relied upon one another. Appropriately illustrated by the Balbusso twins (sisters themselves), the artwork is a glorious amalgamation of math, science, and illustration.... Genius doesn’t come out of nowhere, as this loving paean to strong sisterhood exemplifies." — Kirkus Reviews
