Wisdom Students Meet Author Jeff Kluger at Cradle of Aviation

February 06, 2018

Wisdom students from Mrs. Maynard's classes &some members of the Earth & Space Club attended a lecture & book signing at the Cradle of Aviation on Wednesday, January 24, 2018.They were joined by teachers Mr. Campo, Mrs. Piccolomini, Mrs. Kowalczyk, Mr. & Mrs. Loveland, and Mrs. Maynard. Author Jeffery Kluger has written a new book about Apollo 8. One of his previous books, Lost Moon, was the basis for the movie Apollo 13. He explained how Apollo 8 was a great risk for NASA & the US Space Program in that the potential for failure was high. The decision paid off in that we were the first to reach the Moon & brought us that much closer to winning the Space Race. Mr. Kluger shared lots of personal stories about the Apollo Astronauts and the Apollo program.

Those who attended got autographs & had a chance to talk with him, where he encouraged them to continue their exploration of writing, as well as their interest in a space-related career. We were glad to be at the Cradle to represent Wisdom at this "Countdown to Apollo at 50" program, and continue to be excited to be a Apollo Partner School.
