Join us in kicking off our Adult Summer Reading Program “A Universe of Stories” celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing. This book tells the story of the women behind the spacemen, from Project Mercury of the Kennedy Camelot years (1959 to 1963, which launched the first American into space and eventually into orbit around the Earth), to the Gemini missions (1962 to 1966, notable for two-man space travel and the first U.S. space walk), through the Apollo program (1961 to 1972), which finally landed a man on the moon. The book is the basis for a television series by the same name which is available on DVD.
