So it is a dream come true for her to be presenting her second novel “All the Beautiful Girls” to a Los Alamos audience at 7 p.m. April 26 at Fuller Lodge as part of the Los Alamos County Library System’s Authors Speak series.

After the talk, there will be a book signing.

Los Alamos

When I first heard our utilities department was considering buying into a Small Modular (Nuclear) Reactor (SMR) project I was pleased.

I think most physicists, of my generation at least, secretly harbor the hope that nuclear power will be redeemed and fulfill the promise of virtually unlimited clean power that we grew up with.
