American Luthier by Quincy Whitney Reading/Signing

American Luthier, an upcoming biography to be released by ForeEdge, trade imprint of the University Press of New England--an art-science-music-woman story of a pioneering, revolutionary violinmaker who contributed more to her field than anyone since Stradivari. A most unlikely outsider--a Cornell '33 biologist and trumpet player taught herself acoustical physics by carving violins in her kitchen, and then invented a new family of violins and won the highest award of the Acoustical Society of America--first given to Thomas Edison in 1929. New Hampshire author, Wake Forest graduate, attending the WFU writers conference April 7-9, 2016, on a three-week southern book tour of the Carolinas in April, 2016.
