Garrettsville Book Discussion



Event Type(s): Literary, Clubs
Organization: Portage County District Library Garrettsville branch
Description: The Book Discussion Club of the Garrettsville branch of the Portage County District Library will meet on Tuesday August 15, 2017, in the library meeting room from 5-6 p.m.

The month’s selection is The Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story
By Lily Koppel.

On May 5 1961 the first manned flight of the NASA program, Project Mercury, put seven American astronauts in space and put their wives and families in the limelight. The women formed a sisterhood that supported each other with the challenges and stress of being married to space heroes while a contract with Life magazine documented their lives, clothing, make-up, hairdos, and public outings. These women with the “right stuff” endured separations, womanizing, and alcohol, and would later mentor the wives of future mission astronauts.

Patrons may sign up for the Book Discussion Club at the Reference desk, where copies of the book are available.
