Elizabeth ChurchThe Atomic Weight of Love

Lawyer and debut author Elizabeth Church was born in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Her father, a research chemist, was drafted out of Carnegie Mellon University, and was sent to join other scientists working in secret on the Manhattan Project. Church’s mother, a biologist, eventually joined her husband in Los Alamos. Church discusses her sweeping, beautiful novel The Atomic Weight of Love, the story of many of the women who sacrificed their careers so that their husbands could pursue unique opportunities in scientific research. TaraShea Nesbit, author of The Wives of Los Alamos, joins Elizabeth in conversation about their unique backgrounds and books.
