SD "Nuclear Memoir" Book Signing and San Onofre Update
by Three Mile Island Survivor and Nuclear Hotseat Producer Libbe HaLevy
YES, I GLOW IN THE DARK!
One Mile from Three Mile Island to Fukushima and Nuclear Hotseat
"CLOSE ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM AND DO NOT GO OUTSIDE UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO." – bullhorn going down the street warning of the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island
Libbe HaLevy was visiting friends in Pennsylvania in 1979 and suddenly found herself stranded in a house one mile from the nuclear meltdown at Three Mile Island – an event which changed her life. Now author of the just-released YES, I GLOW IN THE DARK! One Mile from Three Mile Island to Fukushima and Nuclear Hotseat, Libbe will read from and sign her book on Thursday, September 13 from 6-9 p.m. at Grassroots Oasis, 3130 Moore St, San Diego. As producer and host of Nuclear Hotseat – a weekly podcast/broadcast on nuclear issues "from a different perspective" that's now in its eighth year – she has covered nuclear transgressions around the world… and in our own back yard.
At the Grassroots event, HaLevy – who is surprisingly funny – will recreate her terrifying experience and its resulting impact, as well as explore "Nuclear Spin-Speak" – languaging tricks used by the nuclear industry to hide their transgressions against people and the environment in plain sight. She'll conclude by providing an update on San Onofre – the true scope of the August 3 near-miss of what could have been a catastrophic accident; long-term dangers of storing highly radioactive waste on a beach; and the latest on what is known about that week's examination of the facility by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Karl Grossman, Award-winning veteran investigative environmental journalist, says of YES, I GLOW IN THE DARK!: "Excellent! Easy reading, breezy, personal, interesting, very well-written – and highly informative. I find the content impeccable."
Dr. Helen Caldicott, nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Nobel-winner Linus Pauling, says: "This book must be read by all people who care about the future of the planet and their children."
Christina Laymen, Founder, Three Mile Island Survivors: "Thank you for putting into words that people will read and finally understand the depth of damage that has been caused to our souls. It was not only a meltdown of a nuclear power plant it also was a meltdown of human lives; they changed who we could have been and the lives we could have had."
