MacArthur Memorial to virtually host New York Times bestselling author


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A New York Times bestselling author will be discussing her new book virtually come October.

The MacArthur Memorial will be hosting a virtual event with author Lesley M.M. Blume to talk about her new book “Fallout: The Hiroshima Cover-up and the Reporter Who Revealed It to the World.”

Lesley M. M. Blume is an award-winning journalist, historian, and bestselling author.
