Seattle Astronomy is doing our small part in celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 and the first human landing on the Moon. Greg Scheiderer will give six talks as part of the Tacoma Public Library system’s summer reading program.
The talks, titled “Moon Walk: Apollo 11 and a Man on the Moon,” will explore the extraordinary shared experiences of the Apollo missions, look at the history that got us step-by-step up to the giant leap, share some of the iconic photography of Apollo, and, since it’s the summer reading program, offer a list of Apollo readings for adults and kids alike.
The first talk was given on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at the library’s Kobetich Branch. The rest of the schedule is as follows:
- Saturday, July 6, 2:30 p.m.: Swasey Branch
- Tuesday, July 9, 6:30 p.m.: Wheelock Branch
- Wednesday, July 17, 6:30 p.m.: Moore Branch
- Saturday, August 3, 2:30 p.m.: Fern Hill Branch
- Tuesday, August 6, 6:30 p.m.: Main Branch
You can also find schedule information on our calendar, in our Facebook events section, and on the library’s summer reading club events calendar. Come out and join us for a fun look back at Apollo 11!
