The ADL Book Club is going out of this world for A Universe of Stories! June's book is THE ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB by Lily Koppel.
Summary: "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.
As their celebrity rose—and as divorce and tragic death began to touch their lives—they continued to rally together, and the wives have now been friends for more than 50 years. THE ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB tells the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history."
Ask for the book at the Circulation Desk!

We recognize America as a 'nation of immigrants,' but that heritage is not just a matter of history: It continues to be built today. This film provides an in-depth look at a new featured player on America's immigration stage, Indian immigrants.
For as large a role as this group will play in the coming decades, surprisingly little is known about who Indian immigrants are, what values drive them, and what they have to contribute to the contemporary American economy, striving to remain on top in a complicated globalized world. Interviewing experts from fields like law, sociology and public policy, in addition to many families of Indian immigrants in Michigan, this film paints a comprehensive, essential picture of Indian Americans.
This event will include a Q&A session with the filmmaker, Dr. Arifa Javed, at the end of the screening. Dr. Javed teaches at UM-Dearborn.
This screening is presented in coordination with the City of Adrian Human Relations Commission.
