Event Details

See some real and on-screen stars at a screening of the 1983 award-winning astronaut film “The Right Stuff,” as a part of a One City One Book space film series on Thursday, November 3.

Covering some 15 years, “The Right Stuff” recounts the formation of America’s space program, concentrating on the original Mercury astronauts, including Alan Shepard, the first American in space, and John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth.

About One City One Book 2011: (9/6 to 11/12) One City One Book is an annual literary event that encourages community members to read the same book and discuss it at events throughout the city.

Similar to a giant, citywide book club, this year’s program is focused on local author Mary Roach’s “Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void,” and will feature book readings, space-themed movie screenings and more, as well as open discussions all over the city through November 12th . Full Schedule of events
