APOLLO 8: The Thrilling Story of the First Mission to the Moon by Jeffrey Kluger
The untold story of the historic voyage to the moon that closed out one of our darkest years with a nearly unimaginable triumph. “Readers will relish Kluger’s multisensory prose, and the whole gamut of space flight comes alive in the details. Kluger’s laudable storytelling novelistically conveys the charged politics of the era while revealing difficult technical concepts.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

ALIENS: The World’s Leading Scientists on the Search for Extraterrestrial Life by Jim Al-Khalili

GEEK GIRL RISING: Inside the Sisterhood Shaking Up Tech by Heather Cabot & Samantha Walravens
With a nod to tech trailblazers like Sheryl Sandberg and Marissa Mayer, Cabot & Walraves introduce readers to the fearless female founders, technologists, and innovators fighting at a grassroots level for an ownership stake in the revolution that’s changing the way we live, work and connect. “This enlightening read reveals many problems embedded in start-up culture, but, more importantly, it is an invigorating call to action and testament to the wide-ranging successes of women in this field.” — Booklist

THE VANISHING AMERICAN ADULT: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis—and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance by Ben Sasse
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse diagnoses the causes of a generation that can’t grow up and offers a path for raising children to become active and engaged citizens. He identifies core formative experiences that all young people should pursue: hard work to appreciate the benefits of labor, travel to understand deprivation and want, the power of reading, the importance of nurturing your body—and explains how parents can encourage them. “Deeply thoughtful, delightfully personal, and bravely ecumenical in scope, Sasse’s guide for stemming the tide of delayed responsibility showcases what is both practical and possible.” — Booklist readmoreremove
