Upcoming Event
Monday, January 23, 2023 - 7:00pm

Please review library guidelines for masking requirements.

This event is in-person at Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library.

Politics and Prose is delighted to partner with DC Public Library to present Bomb Graphic Novel by Steve Sheinkin and Nick Bertozzi.

Steve Sheinkin’s popular history of the atomic bomb is now a graphic novel with illustrations by Nick Bertozzi. Sheinkin’s extensively researched narrative uses declassified FBI documents to cover Robert Oppenheimer and the Manhattan Project, Soviet espionage, Allied efforts to slow Nazi Germany’s development of nuclear weapons, and the birth of the Cold War. The result is a riveting story of how one of humanity’s most ingenious creations led to one of the most inhumane events in history. Detailed full-color illustrations enrich the story and create a compelling book that will interest readers young and old. 

Steve Sheinkin is the acclaimed author of fast-paced, cinematic nonfiction histories, including Fallout, Undefeated, Born to Fly, The Port Chicago 50, and Bomb. His accolades include a Newbery Honor, three Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards, a Sibert Medal and Honor, and three National Book Award finalist honors. He lives in Saratoga Springs, New York, with his wife and two children. 

Nick Bertozzi has written and drawn many comics over the years, including The Salon, Lewis & Clark, Persimmon Cup, Shackleton: Antarctic Odyssey and Becoming Andy Warhol.  He has taught at the School of Visual Arts since 2003. He lives in Queens, NY with his wife and daughters.

This event is free with first come, first served seating.
