The Friends of the Burlington Public Library will hold their annual meeting followed by Albert Einstein: Reluctant Superstar.

For many people, the name “Einstein” is synonymous with scientific genius, but his passion for science was matched by his commitment to social justice, human rights, and worldwide disarmament.  During the 20s and 30s, Einstein’s public opposition to war – in addition to his scientific notoriety – nearly cost him his life in Nazi Germany and forced him to seek refuge in America.  In this performance, George will focus on Einstein’s later years as an outspoken rebel.

George Capaccio has performed in many of Boston’s theaters, including the American Repertory Theater and with the Museum of Science’s Science Theater.  He is a member of Solo Together, a group of artists who bring historical figures to life.

An educational and entertaining program for adults, sponsored by the Friends of the  Burlington Public Library.  Admission is free and light refreshments are served.
