Featured Speaker: Marianne Dyson with Artist Lindsey Cousins on Beyond Self-Publishing: Becoming a Publisher

What are the financial, legal, personnel quality, quantity, and time considerations of creating books for companies or individuals? Awarding-winning Author and former NASA Flight Controller Marianne Dyson shares insights on her most recent book project. Joining Marianne will be Houston based graphic artist Lindsey Cousins.

Marianne Dyson was one of NASA's first female flight controllers, the subject of her Space Shuttle memoir, A Passion for Space. She's a speaker on space topics for adults and children, a technical editor, and science fiction writer. She is best known for her award-winning children's books about space, including the NSTA 2016 Outstanding Trade Book Welcome to Mars which she coauthored with Apollo 11's Buzz Aldrin for National Geographic. Her next book with Aldrin, To the Moon and Back, was published by NatGeo in the Fall of 2018. For more information on Marianne, visit her website at
