Rocky Mountain Land Series with Kristen Iversen: Full Body Burden

Historic LoDo: Award-winning author Kristen Iversen will discuss and sign her important and haunting memoir Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats (Crown). Full Body Burden is one of the most important stories of the nuclear era—as personal and powerful as Silkwood, told with the suspense and narrative drive of The Hot Zone. With unflinching honesty, Kristen Iversen has written an intimate and deeply human memoir that shows why we should all be concerned about nuclear safety, and the dangers of ignoring science in the name of national security. Rocky Flats needs to be part of the same nuclear discussion as Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima. So does Full Body Burden. It’s an essential and unforgettable book that should be talked about in schools and book clubs, online and in the White House.” —Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
