Join Astronaut Kathy Sullivan, the first American woman to conduct a spacewalk, and local author/illustrator Michael Rosen as they discuss their new children's book, How to Spacewalk: Step-by-Step with Shuttle Astronauts. Book is for ages 6-10 years.
What is it like to walk in space—to use cutting-edge equipment and conduct experiments in a 280-pound space suit? How do you get there in the first place? Would-be spacewalkers will find enthusiasm, vibrant encouragement, and a host of amazing facts, photos, drawings, and descriptions in this engaging guide cowritten by three-time shuttle astronaut Kathryn D. Sullivan and children’s book author Michael J. Rosen (who also provides illustrations). From detailed info about how to train (sometimes underwater!) to descriptions of the emotions spurred by seeing Earth from above, this guide will leave readers inspired and excited to start their own journeys into space.
This family-friendly program is in partnership with Gramercy Books.
Registration for this FREE event is encouraged and it is available on Eventbrite HERE. Books can be pre-purchased on Eventbrite HERE and will be available for sale at the event as well.

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.
The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
