People of the Book Benyamin Cohen -The Einstein Effect

January 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Einstein Effect: How the World’s Favorite Genius Got into Our Cars, Our Bathrooms, and Our Minds.

Wednesday, January 17
7:00pm
Temple Emanu-El
151 McIntosh Road, Sarasota

Almost 70 years after his death, Albert Einstein’s genius continues to define our everyday lives, and his enduring legacy has shaped him into a modern-day pop culture icon. His face is still one of the most recognizable in the world and he’s widely considered to be the first modern-day celebrity. While many of his discoveries continue to define our daily lives, it’s not just his genius that continues to shape our world. Today, more people know Einstein as an icon rather than a theorist. Decades after his death, he’s a celebrity with a massive online following.

The Einstein Effect shows all the ways his influence is still with us today – in our systems and our culture. Interspersed between chapters on his long-lasting scientific legacy, Benyamin Cohen (the mind behind Einstein’s social media accounts!) also tells the story of how Einstein became an unlikely social media figure and pop culture icon.
