The classic novel The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe explores the era of early space exploration and NASA’s strong presence. The Right Stuff is our book club pick this month.

Our facilitator Stacey Goldring was here with Greg Landwirth, whose family owned the Starlite Motel on Cocoa Beach, which is mentioned throughout the book - and is where the Mercury 7 astronauts stayed during their training.
