Author/illustrator Brian Floca presents Moonshot
Brooklyn-based illustrator Brian Floca is the recipient of numerous awards for his work drawing pictures for great children's authors, and his own writerly debut, Moonshot, was one of the New York Times' Top 10 illustrated books of 2010! Moonshot tells the story of the flight of the Apollo 11 spacecraft with simple words and grand pictures: the steady astronauts, the great machines, the ROAR of rockets, and the silence of the Moon. It's a story of adventure and discovery—a story of leaving and returning during the summer of 1969, and a story of home, seen whole, from far away. Join us for a July 4th weekend reading with Brian!
