Marginalia: Elizabeth J. Church

Sep 8, 2016

This episode features a conversation I had recently with Elizabeth J. Church about her book, The Atomic Weight of Love

Church was born in Los Alamos, New Mexico, after her parents relocated there.

While Church’s novel is not her family’s story, their lives were certainly similar.

If you listened to the Marginalia commentary on-air, this is what you heard:

The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth J. Church was published by Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill.
