Left Bank Books welcomes renowned journalist and historian Garrett Graff, who will sign and discuss his new book, “Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself—While the Rest of Us Die”!

Since the beginning of the Cold War, the U.S. government has been secretly planning for what would come after a nuclear attack on America. From hidden bunkers where generals and politicians would be evacuated to secret lists of “dangerous enemies” who would be arrested in the opening moments of war, “Raven Rock” provides the eye-opening truth about the multibillion-dollar Continuity of Government program. From the dawn of the nuclear era through the War on Terror, the COG determines the activities and processes that would allow the government to continue its essential operations following a nuclear attack—and even what totems of American culture should be saved.
