Sunday, July 21, at 2 p.m., Sheryl Faye brings Sally Ride to life at the Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St. This program is a part of the Trumbull Library’s Adult Summer Series, A Universe of Stories.
In this one woman play, Sally Ride’s remarkable life is traced from her childhood to her adulthood. Learn about Ride’s love of science and sports, especially tennis. The story will continue with Ride being picked to be the first American woman astronaut and about her life and career after her time at NASA — from her research with the two shuttle disasters and Sally Ride Science, the organization she created to encourage girls’ interest in math and science. Join for this multi-media presentation in honor of the woman who coined the phrase, Reach for the Stars.
