The Astronaut Wives Club

Don't miss author Lily Koppel at the New Canaan Library on September 12th, 7pm, 151 Main Street. Her latest book "The Astronaut Wives Club" is a fascinating read on the women linked to our earliest space explorers.
As America's Mercury Seven astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, television cameras focused on the brave smiles of their young wives. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and quickly grew into fashion icons. A great story in our American history.
