Rocket Boys: A Memoir by Homer Hickam
Rocket Boys: A Memoir

bclevents, September 13, 2012

This title is recommended by the American Library Association in conjunction with its Traveling Exhibit "Discover Tech - Engineers Make a World of Difference" which our Library is hosting in 2013. Our Library is considering this title for a monthly book discussion and a community read. The bestselling memoir tells the story of the author's life growing up in a harsh West Virginia mining town, and how he grew up to become a NASA engineer. It's appropriate for young adults and adults.
