About the The Graham Holdings Company Interview

We've had the bomb since 1945, and the United States is preparing to spend another $1 trillion over the next 30 years to modernize and overhaul our nuclear arsenal. I'm here to answer any questions you have about nuclear weapons: past, present or future.

The book's main characters are three peace activists who broke into a nuclear-weapons facility in East Tennessee four years ago this month. How and why they did this -- and the unsettling questions prompted by the intrusion -- inspired me to write a story that starts during the Manhattan Project, when the United States first developed the atomic bomb in the 1940s, and finishes with President Obama's remarkable trip to Hiroshima this past May.

Why are we spending all this money on nukes? What are we doing with them 25 years after the Cold War? AMA!
