WWf(a)C Book Group - March
Facilitator: Janie Baer
Time: 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Open to: Women
March 5, 3-5pm - The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan with facilitator Janie Baer.
New York Times bestseller, now available in paperback -- an incredible true story of the top-secret World War II town of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and the young women brought there unknowingly to help build the atomic bomb.
"The best kind of nonfiction: marvelously reported, fluidly written, and a remarkable story...As meticulous and brilliant as it is compulsively readable." --Karen Abbott, author of Sin in the Second City
"Kirenan has amassed a deep reservoir of intimate details of what life was like for women living in the secret city...Rosie, it turns out, did much more than drive rivets." -- The Washington Post
The Book Group will follow the processes used at WWf(a)C, to offer an intentional circle using both writing and conversation to broaden and deepen our understanding of each book. We will explore the obvious and not-so-obvious places where we discover, or in some cases the characters themselves discover, the conscious-feminine.
