Bulletin Publisher and Executive Director Kennette Benedict will interview Pulitzer-Prize winning author Richard Rhodes during the annual Chicago Humanities Festival. The interview will begin at 12:30 p.m. on November 8, 2008, at the Chicago History Museum located at 1601 N. Clark Street. The discussion will focus on Rhodes’s latest book, Arsenals of Folly: The Making of the Nuclear Arms Race, which examines the U.S.-Russian standoff during the Cold War’s final years.
Other works by Rhodes include Dark Sun: The Making of the Hydrogen Bomb and The Making of the Atomic Bomb, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize in Nonfiction in 1988. Rhodes’s article entitled, “Why we should preserve the Manhattan Project,” appeared in the May/June 2007 issue of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
