Best-Selling Author to Speak at Dillon Lecture Apr 3, 2019

Best-selling author Denise Kiernan will be the second speaker in the 2019 Ray and Stella Dillon Lecture Series at Hutchinson Community College.

Kiernan is an author, journalist and producer and has been working as a writer for more than 20 years. Her work has been published in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Village Voice, Ms. Magazine, Reader's Digest, Discover and many more publications. She has also worked in television, serving as head writer for ABC's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" during its Emmy award-winning first season and has produced for media outlets such as ESPN and MSNBC.

Her last two books - The Last Castle and The Girls of Atomic City - were both instant New York Times bestsellers. Kiernan’s lecture will focus on The Girls of Atomic City, the unbelievable true story of young women during World War II who worked in a secret city dedicated to making fuel for the first atomic bomb - only they didn’t know that. This narrative non-fiction book introduces the reader to this world through the eyes of the real women who lived and worked there during the war. The Girls of Atomic City is a story of patriotism and purpose, of mystery and suspicion, survival and remembrance.

For those attending the lecture, the Cosmosphere will have a display of some of their atomic artifacts available for viewing in the Sports Arena south lobby prior to and immediately following the lecture.

Tickets to the lecture are currently on sale at the HutchCC Campus Store in the Parker Student Union.

Kiernan will appear at a press conference for members of the media prior to the lecture.  The press conference is scheduled at 9:45 a.m. in the Media Interview Room of the Hutchinson Sports Arena.

Funding for this program is provided in part by Humanities Kansas, a nonprofit cultural organization connecting communities with history, traditions and ideas to strengthen civic life. Visit www.humanitieskansas.org for more information.

2019 is the 38th season for the Dillon Lecture Series on the HutchCC Campus.  For more information on the Dillon Lecture Series, or to become a patron, call Robin Woodworth at 620-665-3505 or visit the college website at www.hutchcc.edu/dls.
