Girls of Atomic City Paperback Release Party w/ author Denise Kiernan

15 Mar 2014

Saturday, March 15 at 5 pm
Local author (and staff favorite) Denise Kiernan joins us to celebrate the paperback release of her bestselling book, Girls of Atomic City. Kiernan took the story of Oak Ridge, Tennessee’s women workers all over the country, garnering praise from places like The Boston Globe, The Omaha World-Herald, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The Daily Beast said, “Denise Kiernan recreates, with cinematic vividness and clarity, the surreal Orwell-meets-Margaret Atwood environment of Oak Ridge.” She also appeared on NPR’s Weekend Edition, the PBS NewsHour, and The Daily Show, where Jon Stewart said, “I love these kinds of books, and this is a great one....a phenomenal story.” If you missed her last time, or didn’t and just want to have that much fun again, please join us. Special guests and more TBA.
