Event Details

Join us for high tea to celebrate the publication of The Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story with NYT best-selling author Lily Koppel and some astronaut wives, themselves! 

About the book:  As America's Mercury Seven astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, television cameras focused on the brave smiles of their young wives. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and quickly grew into fashion icons.

Annie Glenn, with her picture-perfect marriage, was the envy of the other wives; platinum-blonde Rene Carpenter was proclaimed JFK's favorite; and licensed pilot Trudy Cooper arrived on base with a secret. Together with the other wives they formed the Astronaut Wives Club, meeting regularly to provide support and friendship. Many became next-door neighbors and helped to raise each other's children by day, while going to glam parties at night.
As their celebrity rose-and as divorce and tragic death began to touch their lives-they continued to rally together, and the wives have now been friends for more than fifty years. This is the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history.
 
About the author:  Lily Koppel is the author of The Red Leather Diary. She has written for The New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, The Daily Beast, Huffington Post, and Glamour.She lives in New York City with her husband and their two spacey rescue dogs, Ozzy and Lucky.
 
Your $55 Ticket includes high tea, Wives Recipe booklet, and a signed cloth first edition of The Astronaut Wives Club.
