DENISE KIERNAN

At the height of World War II, Oak Ridge, Tennessee was home to 75,000 residents, many of them young women from small towns across the South. Their work on a secret project later known as the Manhattan Project is revealed by Denise Kiernan in her new book, The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II (Touchstone). "The Girls of Atomic City is the best kind of nonfiction: marvelously reported, fluidly written, and a remarkable story about a remarkable group of women who performed clandestine and vital work during World War II. Denise Kiernan recreates this forgotten chapter in American history in a work as meticulous and brilliant as it is compulsively readable." - Karen Abbott.
