Brumm to host discussion at PWPL

MARQUETTE — Without the innovations of scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs, the exploration of space would not be possible.

Join Margaret Brumm at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 28 in the Shiras Room of the Peter White Public Library for the third in a series of talks on People Who Changed the World. For this presentation, Brumm will talk about her favorite inventor, James Watt. Watt, an 18th century musical instrument maker and inventor was a major contributor to the Industrial Revolution. Known primarily for his innovations that improved the steam engine, Watt also worked on improving the copying process and cleaning chemical glassware.

Brumm is a patent attorney and member of the State Bar of Michigan. She earned her BS degree in Chemical Engineering from Michigan Technological University and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Michigan Law School. Currently, she works in private practice of patent, trademark and copyright law with clients from multinational corporations in the U.S. and law firms in London, England.

Brumm’s program is part of the library’s Universe of Stories Summer Reading Program for adults. There is no admission charge to attend.
