The Girls of Atomic City is the true story of young women living in a secret government city during World War II while unknowingly working on the first atomic bomb. Kiernan’s lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Van Meter Hall; a book signing will follow. Admission is free.

In her lecture, Kiernan will take audiences into a top-secret world where young women and men lived and worked surrounded by spies and secrecy, forbidden to speak of their work, even to each other, as the United States worked to face the challenges of World War II and the Manhattan Project raced to harness nuclear power.
