[i] The first book signing for "Smoke Jumper, Moon Pilot" will be held at the award-winning Will Rogers Museum in Claremore, Oklahoma (Roosa's hometown) on Saturday, March 10th.
Tentatively scheduled to speak are Roosa family members, the publisher, and the author, who will also read a brief excerpt from the book.
In addition to having a disproportionate number of early astronauts (Cooper, Stafford, Pogue, Roosa, etc.), there's also a connection between some earlier Oklahoma aviation pioneers and space flight. Record-setting aviator The Sooner State's Wiley Post was one of the earliest developers of a pressurized flight suit, thus some buffs have proclaimed Post to have "invented the space suit." Post and humorist Will Rogers (who also claimed Claremore as his hometown) perished in a plane crash on 15 AUG 35.
Details about the Roosa book signing will soon be available at [URL=http://www.willrogers.com]willrogers.com[/URL][/i]
