NPR Discusses The Dead Boys with AEI Client Royce Buckingham
RICHLAND, Wash. - Radioactive waste doesn't seem like obvious inspiration for a children's story. But in fact, comic books are full of tales that involve radiation. Think Spider-Man.
Now a Northwest author (Royce Buckingham) has written a new children's thriller (The Dead Boys) about a radioactive-waste-slurping sycamore tree. It's set near the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in southeast Washington.
