The Oceanside Public Library is proud to host Francis French, acclaimed author and Director of Education at the San Diego Air & Space Museum, at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 7, 2013, in the Civic Center Library Foundation Room, located at 330 N. Coast Highway.
In the 1960's, two superpowers were engaged in a titanic battle to land the first human on the moon. Why did America get there first? And why was Neil Armstrong chosen as the person to make that first step?
In this talk, Francis French will take you through the colorful personalities and risky decisions that led up to the historic moment of the first moon landing.
