Astronaut Jan Davis Book Signing


Former American astronaut and veteran of three space flights, Dr. Jan Davis, will join the U.S. Space & Rocket Center on Friday and Saturday, June 7th and 8th, to sign her book 'Air Born: Two Generations in Flight.'

'Air Born' allows the reader to join on a flight through history as Jan Davis relates her father's heroic service and draws connections through his combat missions and her own spaceflights. Discover the ins and outs of pilot training in the 1940s alongside Ben Smotherman and bear witness to his harrowing capture, interrogation, and imprisonment at Stalag Luft III. Shadow Jan Davis as she expertly navigates a career characterized by space exploration, scientific experimentation, and phenomenal feats of engineering. Draw inspiration from the intersection of two completely different yet uniquely connected worlds brought together by a common link of family and flying.

The book signing is free and open to the public on Friday, June 7th, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Discovery Theater, and Saturday, June 8th, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Gift Shop.

We will have copies of 'Air Born: Two Generations in Flight' onsite at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
