Girls of Atomic City - October 30

At our September 25th meeting, we discussed The Book that Matters Most by Ann Hood.  Everyone enjoyed the book and we had a great discussion on the books that matter most to us.  Overall, we liked the story progression and didn't focus much on the book titles featured.  We had Pepperidge Farm Lemon Cake and watermelon.  The hot weather was also perfect for having lemonade.

Our next bookgroup will be Monday, October 30th in the new library meeting room.  We will discuss the book Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan.  Books are now available for checkout at the front desk and discussion sheets are also available at the desk or online

Summary of Girls of Atomic City:
"This is the story of the young women of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, who unwittingly played a crucial role in one of the most significant moments in U.S. history. The Tennessee town of Oak Ridge was created from scratch in 1942. One of the Manhattan Project's secret cities. All knew something big was happening at Oak Ridge, but few could piece together the true nature of their work until the bomb "Little Boy" was dropped over Hiroshima, Japan, and the secret was out. The reverberations from their work there, work they did not fully understand at the time, are still being felt today."
