Contemporary Evening Book Discussion: Light from Other Stars by Erika Swyler

April 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Book cover of Light from Other Stars by Erika Swyler


NSPL joins other Long Island libraries in offering this year’s Long Island Reads Book, Light from Other Stars, by Erika Swyler for our April discussion title during National Library Week.

In 1986, eleven-year-old Nedda is in her classroom near Cape Canaveral and watches on television as the Challenger launches and explodes. As Nedda grapples with her own obsession of becoming an astronaut, the author deftly weaves her parents’ lives- her father a former NASA physicist, and her mother a former chemist – into scenes of Nedda’s future aboard an interstellar vessel traveling to a faraway planet. A nostalgic coming of age novel as well as a profound work of science fiction.

Moderated by Professor Mike Boecherer of SCCC

Copies of the books are available at the Reference desk. Everyone is welcome!
