Author Charles Fishman: “One Giant Leap: The Impossible Mission that Flew Us to the Moon”
Wednesday, July 10, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The acclaimed author discusses and signs copies of his book, the remarkable story of the trailblazers and ordinary Americans on the front lines of the epic mission to reach the moon. From digital pioneer Charles Draper, who created the two computers aboard Apollo 11, to the factories where hundreds of women weaved computer programs with copper wire, “One Giant Leap” captures the sweeping achievement of the men and women charged with changing the world as we knew it — their leaders, triumphs and near disasters — and the events that led to what is arguably the greatest success story of the 20th century.
Fishman is also the author of “A Curious Mind” (with Brian Grazer), “The Wal-Mart Effect” and “The Big Thirst.” He is a three-time winner of the Gerald Loeb Award, the most prestigious prize in business journalism.
Labyrinth Books will provide books for signing.
