The Thursday evening book group will be reading Girls of Atomic City: Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II by Denise Kiernan. This riveting novel tells the story of the women who were recruited to work in Oak Ridge, Tennessee on the secret uranium enrichment project that led to the bomb. One of the Manhattan Project’s secret cities, it didn’t appear on any maps until 1949, and yet at the height of World War II it was using more electricity than New York City and was home to more than 75,000 people, many of them young women recruited from small towns across the South. Their jobs were shrouded in mystery, but they were buoyed by a sense of shared purpose, close friendships—and a surplus of handsome scientists and Army men! In The Girls of Atomic City, Denise Kiernan traces the astonishing story of these unsung WWII workers through interviews with dozens of surviving women and other Oak Ridge residents. Like The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, this is history and science made fresh and vibrant—a beautifully told, deeply researched story that unfolds in a suspenseful and exciting way. Join us on the evening of April 10th from 7-8:15 Pm at the main library to discuss this fascinating novel. For more information please contact Sarah at 624-6560.
