Produced in collaboration with students at Parsons the New School for Design
Radioactive tells the story of an artist and writer who drew on the vast collections of The New York Public Library to create a new work of art. Lauren Redniss was a Fellow at the Library’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers in 2008–09, where she worked on a book of visual art and narrative nonfiction called Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, A Tale of Love and Fallout (HarperCollins, December 2010).
