We are excited for this upcoming event with our co-founder and president, Abigail Harrison, where she’ll be launching her new book “Dream Big!: How to Reach for Your Stars” with retired NASA astronaut Scott Kelly.
Famous for his record-breaking year-long stay in space, Scott Kelly is an incredibly influential and inspiring figure for us here at The Mars Generation. Scott Kelly also was a participant in the famous twin study, where scientists examined the DNA of him and his twin brother, Mark Kelly. Even more, he commanded the space shuttle Endeavour in 2007 and the International Space Station twice.
Scott is also an avid supporter of STEM and of encouraging young people to become excited and engaged about space and science. He’s written his own book, Goodnight Astronaut, which is available February 2nd, and will be speaking with me about all things STEM, the future of space, accomplishing your dreams, and more!
The mission of The Mars Generation has always been to excite and engage young people about their dreams, whether they are STEM-related or not. That’s why we are so proud of our co-founder for writing this book and guide. “Dream Big!” is all about how young people can create a plan, face their fears, and overcome challenges so they can tackle their dreams head-on! With quizzes, personal stories, and workbook activities throughout, we know “Dream Big!” will be a fun and helpful guide for its readers and a continuation of our core mission!
The event will be held by Malaprop’s Bookstore and Cafe, an independent bookstore in Asheville, NC! Founded in 1982, they also have other cool events and book launches with authors. A huge thank you to Malaprop’s for hosting! If you’re a bookworm like us, we hope you check them out and consider supporting an independent bookstore!
