A is for Astronaut: Blasting Through the Alphabet
Put on your space gear and join us this afternoon for treats, fun swag, and a chance to meet a real-life astronaut! 


Space has been called the "final frontier", and for most of us, the top job in that frontier is that of an astronaut! In A is for Astronaut: Blasting Through the Alphabet, retired Astronaut Clayton Anderson takes readers on an A-Z tour explaining not only what it means to be an explorer in space but also the science (and dangers) of space flight. Topics include the history behind and ongoing mission of NASA, famous astronauts and their missions, equipment and innovations, and explanations of key terminology. Whether a science buff, a budding astronaut, an educator building STEAM* curriculum materials A is for Astronaut will have readers of all ages reaching for the stars!


Retired astronaut Clayton Anderson spent 167 days in outer space having lived and worked on the International Space Station (ISS) for 152 days and participated in nearly 40 hours of space walks. He served as Science Officer on ISS and as the Crew Medical Officer for ISS Expedition 15/16 and STS-131. With a strong belief in perseverance and the importance of STEAM as part of every child's education, Astronaut Anderson brings his "out of this world" insight to issues faced by children, parents, and educators. "Astro Clay" applied 15 times before NASA selected him as an astronaut in 1998; he spent 30 years working for NASA, 15 as an engineer and 15 as an astronaut. He is the first and ONLY astronaut selected from the state of Nebraska. A is for Astronaut is his first children's book.
