50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

Fifty years ago on July 16, 1969 Apollo 11 launched to go to the moon! July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing and the first steps on the Moon. This event inspired a young boy on an Ontario corn farm to become the first Canadian to walk in space.

Celebrate this event with The Darkest Dark by Chris Hadfield and Kate Fillion, illustrated by the Fan Brothers.
