Libbe HaLevy’s nuclear memoir:

CLOSE ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS

…AND DO NOT GO OUTSIDE UNLESS YOU ABS0LUTELY HAVE TO.

The police loudspeaker warned that what was not supposed to happen had happened: a malfunctioning nuclear reactor just down the road.

That’s where author, Libbe HaLevy, found herself in 1979, when she visited a friend in a small, quiet Pennsylvania town and ended up one mile away from the Three Mile Island nuclear reactor during its radiation-spewing meltdown. YES, I GLOW IN THE DARK! tells the story of not only that meltdown, but its impact on a life beyond the mere physical damage caused by radiation exposure.

Fierce, uncompromising, yet surprisingly funny, HaLevy has written a book that Australian physician, author, and anti-nuclear advocate Dr. Helen Caldicott calls, “Absolutely fascinating. This book must be read by all people who care about the future of the planet and their children.”
