Nevada's history is steeped in the nuclear tests that exploded across the desert in the 1950s.  Nevada author Ann Ronald imagines what life must have been like for the scientists, military, ranchers, and other locals in her book, Friendly Fallout 1953.  This fictional account of our state's nuclear age is this year's book for Nevada Reads, the first statewide community group read.  Join us as we explore Ann's imaginary world where the Cold War, science, and patriotism collide.
