For June, we will be reading and discussing the nonfiction book A Man on the Moon by Andrew Chaikin. It's a highly acclaimed account of the Apollo Space program and the race to the moon.
A quick preview from the publisher:
On the night of July 20, 1969, our world changed forever when two Americans, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, walked on the moon. Now the greatest event of the twentieth century is magnificently retold through the eyes and ears of the people who were there. Based on the interviews with twenty-three moon voyagers, as well as those who struggled to get the program moving, journalist Andrew Chaikin conveys every aspect of the missions with breathtaking immediacy: from the rush of liftoff, to the heart-stopping lunar touchdown, to the final hurdle of reentry...
I'm announcing June's selection early to give us plenty of time to find and read the book. Hope many of you can join us! Always looking forward to seeing regular members and newcomers!
