109 East Palace Ave, Robert Oppenheimer and the Secret City of Los Alamos, by Jennet Conant. Only a few blocks from Santa Fe’s city center, 109 East Palace was the first stop for Richard Feynman, Enrico Fermi, Robert Oppenheimer and other Manhattan Project scientists who would arrive there and be spirited up to “The Hill”–Los Alamos–where top-secret work on the atomic bomb took place. 109 East Palace ceased being a receiving station for Los Alamos in 1963; a plaque in the gallery commemorates the building’s history.
All Vivace meetings are hosted by our co-sponsor, Collected Works Bookstore & Coffeehouse. Each discussion will be preceded by a half-hour social beginning at 5:30PM, with a discussion start time of 6:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to come early to get a cup of coffee and a snack from Iconik and enjoy conversation with other Vivace enthusiasts. We also urge everyone to purchase their books from Collected Works. They stock an ample supply of upcoming titles. Vivace is open to the public as well as members of The Santa Fe Opera Guild.
