PIQUA — Susan Southard, 2016 Dayton Literary Peace Prize (DLPP) nonfiction award winner, visited Edison State Community College on Thursday as part of Edison’s Peace Week, which the English department hosted. Inspired by the 1995 Dayton Peace Accords that ended the war in Bosnia, the DLPP is the only international literary peace prize awarded in the U.S. This was Southard’s first speaking engagement since being named a prizewinner for her book “Nagasaki: Life After Nuclear War.”
In this clip, Southard describes the first 60 seconds of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in August 1945.
