Houston calls itself Space City, so we know we have some space enthusiasts around here. We are thrilled to host Liisa Jorgensen in a virtual discussion of Far Side of the Moon: Apollo 8 Commander Frank Borman and the Woman Who Gave HIm Wings. This biography captures the ambitions, stresses, and sacrifices of astronauts and their families during the race for the moon through the story of one of those families.
**This event will be in Zoom Webinar, and you can register HERE.
