Denise Kiernan - The Girls of Atomic City

Colfax Avenue: Journalist, author, and television writer and producer Denise Kiernan will discuss and sign her new book The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II (Touchstone). Drawing on the voices of the women who worked in the great war factories of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, at the height of World War II—women who are now in their eighties and nineties—The Girls of Atomic City rescues a remarkable, forgotten chapter of American history from obscurity. Combining the grand-scale human drama of The Worst Hard Time with the intimate biography and often troubling science of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The Girls of Atomic City is a lasting and important addition to our country’s history.
