Each year, readers from all over Long Island gather together to participate in Long Island Reads, an Island-wide reading project designed to bring together readers from across Nassau and Suffolk Counties to discuss a book with a Long Island connection and participate in library-sponsored activities and events associated with the title.
This year’s pick is Spaceman: An Astronaut’s Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe by Franklin Square native (and Big Bang Theory guest star!) Mike Massimino. The memoir is the spellbinding true story of a Long Island boy who became one of our best-known living space travelers. Despite daunting challenges and numerous setbacks, Mike never gave up his dream of becoming an astronaut. His book brings the reader into a rare, wonderful world where nerdy science meets thrilling adventure, and pulls back a curtain on just what it really means to have “the right stuff.”
How Can You Participate In Long Island Reads 2018?
- Check out or download a copy of Spaceman from the Huntington Public Library collection; CD books and Large Print versions are available. Please ask one of our librarians to assist you in locating or downloading a copy.
