Join us for a book club discussion of "American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer" by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin. This book is the first full-scale biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer, "father of the atomic bomb," the talented physicist who led the effort to help this country in time of war. Recently, the famous movie Oppenheimer was based on this novel. It is available in hardcover, large print, ebook, and audiobook formats at many bookstores and libraries.
This will be a friendly conversation, not a debate or a book report! We look forward to a lively discussion about what you liked, what you learned, and even what you disagreed with. Whether you read it cover to cover, skim it, or only get part way, we still encourage you to join us to share your thoughts and hear from others. Don't forget to spread the word to your coworkers and colleagues, these discussions always benefit from more perspectives!
Kindly contact email@example.com if you have any questions. This is the first of a series of book club this calendar year, so if you would like to participate in the future but cannot attend this session, please contact us to let us know that you are interested.
