June Y Read Book Club - "Rocket Boys"

Active Older Adults

Active Older Adult Events

to
Olathe Family YMCA
21400 W 153rd Street, Olathe, KS 66061
The group will discuss "Rocket Boys" by Homer Hickman. One of the most beloved bestsellers in recent years, Rocket Boys is a uniquely American memoir. A powerful, luminous story of coming of age at the end of the 1950s, it is the story of a mother's love and a father's fears, of growing up and getting out. With the grace of a natural storyteller, Homer Hickam looks back after a distinguished NASA career to tell his own true story of growing up in a dying coal town and of how, against the odds, he made his dreams of launching rockets into outer space come true.
 
A story of romance and loss and a keen portrait of life at an extraordinary point in American history, Rocket Boys is a chronicle of triumph.
 
Michelle will email a link, for Zoom participants so register for this event by calling the Olathe Y, stopping by the Welcome Center or online. Masks will be required.
