ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Former astronaut and author Buzz Aldrin will discuss and sign his newest book, “No Dream is Too High: Life Lessons from a Man Who Walked on the Moon,” on Monday, April 18 at 7 p.m. at the Kissimmee Books-A-Million, located at 2605 West Osceola Parkway. Guests will enjoy a conversation and Q&A session led by Aldrin’s mission director, Christina Korp, followed by the book signing.
Buzz Aldrin, an American engineer and NASA veteran, was one of the first men to walk on the Moon, following Mission Commander Neil Armstrong. He was aboard the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing in history. “No Dream is Too High” is an inspiring guide-to-life for the next generation, as this beloved American hero reflects on the wisdom, guiding principles and irreverent anecdotes he's gathered through his event-filled life – both in outer space and on earth.
Everywhere he goes, crowds gather to meet Aldrin. He is a world-class hero and larger-than-life figurehead, best known of a generation of astronauts whose achievements surged in just a few years from first man in space to first men on the moon. Now, he pauses to reflect and share what he has learned from the vantage point not only of outer space but also of time. Still a non-stop traveler and impassioned advocate for space exploration, Aldrin is now 86-years-old. "No Dream Is Too High" whittles down Buzz Aldrin's event-filled life into a short list of principles he values, each illustrated by fascinating anecdotes and memories. This beautiful memento offers a thought-provoking set of ideas and a new opportunity for Aldrin to connect with the masses of people who recognize his unique place in human history.
