Coffee Talk Book Discussion for May

The Girls of Atomic City tells the true story of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, a secret city founded during World War II to help create fuel for the atomic bomb. Oak Ridge didn’t appear on any maps, but thousands of workers moved there during the war. Most of them didn’t know what they were working on until the atomic bomb fell on Hiroshima, Japan.  Based on extensive research and interviews with the actual workers, Denise Kiernan puts together the intriguing story of the secret workings within this secret city.  Join us on Tuesday, May 13th at 1:30 for Coffee Talk Book Discussion of this fascinating book.  No registration necessary.
