Salter Center Book Discussion: The Girls of Atomic City

Monday, December 15
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Salter Community Center

Adult, Book Discussion Groups

The town of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, boomed on U.S. military-owned acreage between 1942-1944. Its electricity usage matched that of New York City, and its population reached 75,000 - yet it didn't appear on a single map during World War II. Many new residents were women, recruited at top-dollar wages for positions from chemists to couriers. Sworn to strict secrecy protocols, they were told only that their work would ensure a swift World War II victory. The nuclear blast at Hiroshima at last revealed their hidden roles. The Girls of Atomic City brilliantly illuminates a long-overlooked chapter of both World War II and women's history.
