Nonfiction Book Discussion

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
We'll meet at the library to discuss The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel. Check at the Ask Us Desk for exact location.

It is 1959 and the Space Race with Russia is in full force. NASA has selected seven astronauts to go into space, leaving their wives and families here on earth. The wives rally to support each other and their young families as the media circus around them grows. The fashionable young wives keep brave smiles on as their husbands fly in a death-defying orbit around the earth and the nation collectively holds its breath for their safe return.

Books are available at the Ask Us Desk one month before each discussion. Registration is not required.
