“The Engineer’s Wife: A Novel of the Brooklyn Bridge” by Tracey Enerson Wood

Together we will discuss Emily Roebling, a fascinating woman who helped design and construct the Brooklyn Bridge but, until recently, had been lost in its shadow. Sign up today to join us at McNally Jackson Seaport where we will explore how Roebling overcomes stern resistance and overwhelming obstacles to assume her husband’s role as Chief Engineer of the bridge.

Register for the June meeting of the Seaport Museum Book Club today to receive a 10% off discount code for online orders of the book at McNally Jackson Books.
