STEAM Stories with Maura – with special guest Kristy Dempsey

June 22 @ 10:00 am – 10:30 am

Main Street Books – 126 S. Main Street

Kids of all ages are invited to join Maura in Main Street Books for an extra special astronaut craft, followed by a reading of “Papa Put a Man on the Moon” by author Kristy Dempsey. In time for the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing, “Papa Put a Man on the Moon” is a father-daughter story that celebrates a small community’s big contribution to one of America’s greatest accomplishments. Marthanne and her father sit side-by-side, looking out over their mill village as the moon glows in the sky. Marthanne hopes that one day, man will walk on the moon, and she knows her father is helping America accomplish this mission: The fabric he weaves forms one layer in the astronauts’ spacesuits. Papa insists he’s only making a living, but Marthanne knows his work is part of history, and she’s proud. She tries to be patient, but she can’t stop imagining the moon mission: the astronauts tumbling through space, the fabric her papa made traveling all the way up into the sky. When the astronauts blast off and Neil Armstrong finally takes his first steps on the moon, Marthanne watches in wonder. She knows her papa helped put a man on the moon

An Afternoon with Andrew Lawler

June 22 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Main Street Books – 126 S. Main Street

In 1587, 115 men, women, and children arrived at Roanoke Island on the coast of North Carolina to establish the first English colony in the New World–and then vanished. In “The Secret Token,” journalist Andrew Lawler sets out on a quest to solve an enigma that has obsessed generations of historians, archaeologists, and amateur sleuths. The Washington Post calls it “crazy fun” as well as “surprisingly fresh and powerful,” while the Wall Street Journal deems it “the most authoritative account of the Lost Colony to date.” The Economist says that “Mr Lawler is an intrepid guide to this treacherous territory,” adding that “his willingness to chase down every lead, no matter how outlandish, and his enthusiasm for the journey as much as the destination, make “The Secret Token” a lively and engaging read.” Andrew Lawler is the author of the highly acclaimed “Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?” He is a contributing writer for Science, a contributing editor for Archaeology Magazine, and has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Geographic, Smithsonian, and Slate. Please join him at Main Street Books for a discussion and signing of “The Secret Token.”
