Let's discuss The Girls of Atomic City, by Denise Kiernan

The full title of this one is The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II, and it's been suggested to me by a few people; it just published this March, and looks like a great read! Check it out on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Girls-Atomic-City-Untold-Helped/dp/1451617526/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1369004726&sr=1-1&keywords=The+Girls+of+Atomic+City

    I am so sorry I never signed up b/c I could not get the book. I am still 9th in Line at the library...

    I don't know is you take book recommendations but just in case...A memoir written by a woman called "Wild". Cheryl Strayed, herself, backpacks the Pacific Coast Trail.A physical and emotional journey. At least I could come. I read the book.

    Read the book and liked it. Have to cancel due to my daughter coming up for the weekend. If you read Scandalous Life, go see John Singer Sargent's watercolors at the Brooklyn Museum. A whole room of Bedouin desert life from the same time frame.

    Atomic City sounds great. Trying for the Library. Do not want to buy more books in face would love to donate. If it's new in paperback?Sorry to be on retirement income really dictates your purchases. Enjoy
