APOLLO 8:
THE THRILLING STORY OF THE FIRST MISSION TO THE MOON
This program features space historian Amy Teitel interviewing author Jeffrey Kluger about his newest book, Apollo 8: The Thrilling Story of the First Mission to the Moon. Written with all the color and verve of the best narrative non-fiction, Apollo 8 takes us from Mission Control to the astronauts' homes, from the test labs to the launch pad.

In August of 1968, NASA made a bold decision: In just 16 weeks, the United States would launch humankind’s first flight to the moon. Only the year before, three astronauts had burned to death in their spacecraft, and since then the Apollo program had suffered one setback after another. Meanwhile, the Russians were winning the space race, the Cold War was getting hotter by the month, and President Kennedy’s promise to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade seemed sure to be broken. But when Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders were summoned to a secret meeting and told of the dangerous mission, they instantly signed on.

This program kicks off the Summer Reading Program for Grown-ups, but all are welcome to attend!
