Lynn Sherr - Sally Ride: America's First Woman in Space

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Ride made history in 1983 as the first woman to go into space. The astrophysicist served as a mission specialist on two Challenger flights, helping to deploy satellites. What did it take to get there? Sherr, an award-winning broadcast journalist who covered NASA from 1981 to 1986, draws on Ride’s personal letters and diaries as well as interviews with her family, partner, and colleagues to present a rich portrait of an extraordinary woman.
