The Right Stuff: final
by Tom Wolfe // Picador
February 20 1962, Cape Canaveral, Florida. The 134-ton Atlas rocket with Astronaut John Glenn in the Mercury capsule roars from the launching pad at 9:47 AM, EST, on flight that put him into orbit just minutes later.
The Right Stuff is the latest selection for the ONE BOOK, ONE CHICAGO program for Fall 2008. This award-winning program presented by the Chicago Public Library encourages all Chicagoans to read the same book at the same time, and to come together with friends and neighbors to share and discuss a great work of literature.
What a great idea! And check out their awesome resource guide. It's chock full of great interviews, articles, historical background and timelines. Really well done.
