MOONBOUND APOLLO 11 & DREAM OF

The story of space has always been about the conflict of imagination versus reality, of dreams versus politics. On July 20, 1969, something extraordinary happened, something civilizations had dreamed of for centuries: humans walked on the moon. Jonathan Fetter-Vorm's Moonbound is the story behind those first steps. It begins with the tense descent of the spidery Lunar Module, which transported Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the surface of the moon. Then the story splits to an examination of the history of man's fascination with space, from the earliest observers of the moon to the modern era. The narrative returns to July 20, 1969, the moment when our heroes made their historic moon walk, and finally moves on to present and future.

THE TIMES I KNEW I WAS

Ellie always had questions about who she was and how she fit in. As a girl, she wore black, obsessed over Willow in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and found dating boys much more confusing than many of her friends did. As she grew older, so did her fears and a deep sense of unbelonging. From her first communion to her first girlfriend via a swathe of self-denial, awkward encounters, and everyday courage, Ellie tells her story through gorgeous illustrations - a fresh and funny self-portrait of a young woman becoming herself.
