Radioactive Book Party

On Tuesday, June 23rd, mediabistro.com instructor and author Tom Zoellner will host a party to celebrate the release of his new book, “Uranium.” The party lasts from 6:30 to 8:30pm, and will be held at Katra in New York City.

The author will sign books, share Yellow Cake, and toast readers with his specialty cocktail, the Uranium Drop. Drink specials and complimentary appetizers provided by Katra. You can RSVP here. Earlier this year, Zoellner appeared on The Daily Show to talk about his book about this unstable element.

Here’s more about the book: “Uranium is a riveting journey to the heart of this eerie mineral, taking us from slave camps in Africa, to desert mesas, war councils, smugglers’ routes, doomsday cults, jungle mines and secret enrichment plants over five continents in a narrative that is equal parts history, investigative journalism and nonfiction thriller.”
