Kristen Iversen -- "Full Body Burden"
06/18/2012 7:30 pm
Kristen Iversen will be at Unity of Boulder Church
(2855 Folsom Street Boulder, CO 80304) to speak about and sign her new book, Full Body Burden, on Monday, June 18th at 7:30pm.
About the book:
Full Body Burden is a haunting work of narrative nonfiction about Kristen Iversen’s childhood in a Colorado town close to Rocky Flats, a secret nuclear weapons plant once designated "the most contaminated site in America." It's the story of growing up in the shadow of the Cold War, in a landscape at once startlingly beautiful and—unknown to those who lived there—tainted with invisible yet deadly particles of plutonium. As this memoir unfolds, it reveals itself as a brilliant work of investigative journalism and a book about the destructive power of secrets.
