UOG Press Launches Book on Tinian and the Atomic Bomb
Author Don Farrell combed through the National Achieves to find an extensive collection of documents and images detailing the often overlooked, yet incredibly valuable role the island of Tinian played in the atomic bombing of Japan at the end of World War II. From his research, Farrell has written Tinian and the Bomb, which features detailed accounts and a vast collection of images capturing this significant moment in world history. The University of Guam Press will host a Guam launch and discussion of the book on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at the UOG College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences’ Lecture Hall. The launch will also feature remarks from UOG President Robert Underwood, who wrote the book’s foreword.
The Pacific Historic Parks will also host Farrell on Friday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to noon at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center, commonly known as the National Park Service Visitor Center, where he will provide a book signing and discussion.
Tinian and the Bomb will be available for sale in hardcover at $35 per book at both events. After the launch, the book will be made available at the UOG Triton Bookstore, the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center’s bookstore, on the UOG Press website (www.uog.edu/uogpress), on the Amazon online store, and in various local bookstores in Guam and Saipan.
