Please join us this month when award winning science journalist and historian, Robert Zimmerman, comes to speak to us about The Story of Apollo 8.

A new edition of Mr. Zimmerman's first book, Genesis, The Story Of Apollo 8, has just been released as an eBook. It describes the family and political tale behind the first manned mission to another world. He has also written The Universe In A Mirror: The Saga of The Hubble Space Telescope And The Visionaries Who Built It, which tells the story of the people who conceived, built, and saved the Hubble Space Telescope, Leaving Earth: Space Stations, Rival Superpowers, and The Quest For Interplanetary which was awarded the Astronautical Literature Award as the best space history for the general public in 2003, and The Chronological Encyclopedia Discoveries in Space, which is a detailed reference book describing what was accomplished on every space mission, beginning in October 1957 with Sputnik and continuing through December 1999.

Mr. Zimmerman has also written extensively about Unknown Stories from Space: astronaut adventures that did not reach the press. Feel free to ask him questions about the stories only he can share!

This meeting is also our Annual Scholarship Fundraiser, so please bring a gift for the Chinese Auction. We will do the drawing during the dinner and the winners names will be posted on a board so you can pick up your winnings on the way out.

For any changes or questions regarding your reservations, please call our Executive Secretary, Nilha Saied at 716-634-1427.
