August - 109 East Palace: Robert Oppenheimer and the Secret City of Los Alamos

"109 East Palace: Robert Oppenheimer and the Secret City of Los Alamos" by Jennet Conant won our poll for August's book.


"109 East Palace" delves into the logistics of Los Alamos, the town that began as a top secret facility built during WWII to house the Manhattan Project and the development of America's first nuclear weapons. The book also looks at Robert Oppenheimer as the leader of the project and as a person. The author comes to the subject with a unique perspective, as her grandfather was an administrator for the Manhattan Project and other wartime initiatives.

 

Looking forward to our discussion, and make sure to bring your book ideas for the September poll!
