Talk: Eric Schlosser on Nuclear Weapons

    Tuesday 15 October 2013
    Conway Hall

    Eric Schlosser is one of the greatest American storytellers of our time.

    His award-winning investigative journalism exposed the fast food industry in his pioneering book Fast Food Nation; now he’s back with a groundbreaking account of accidents, near-misses, extraordinary heroism and technological breakthroughs. His new book, Command and Control, reveals the secrets of the nuclear weapons industry and asks how you can deploy weapons of mass destruction without being destroyed by them?

    Eric Schlosser will be in London for one night only, in conversation with the BBC correspondent Justin Webb, on Tuesday 15 October at 7.30pm at the Conway Hall.
