UW’s Go Big Read choice for 2012-2013 is the remarkable Radioactive: Marie and Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout by Lauren Redniss. One of Ebling Library’s most popular exhibits has been “Fallout: The Mixed Blessing of Radiation and the Public Health,” which was imagined in response to Radioactive.
The Friends of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Library and Ebling Library will be hosting a tour of “Fallout” with curator Micaela Sullivan-Fowler, followed by a moderated Go Big Read Book Discussion with Associate Professor Richard Staley from UW’s History of Science Department. A reception will be held after the discussion. All the events are open to the the UW campus and community.
