North Coast Neighbors Share A Book 2005: A Success for Readers and the Community!
Author Homer Hickam came to northeast Ohio on April 14 to join in our celebration of reading. The author, who was entertaining and cordial, was hosted at both the NASA Glenn facility and the newly renovated Akron-Summit County Public Library. The NASA appearance was not only attended by 450 people in the audience, but was also connected via the web to classrooms throughout Ohio and Michigan.
The Kickoff event for the 2005 Share A Book was held at the Great Lakes Science Center on February 24. Well over one hundred people enjoyed an IMAX movie, a talk by Dr. Kathy Sullivan (who has flown on the International Space Station), as well as an enlightening talk by one of NASA's own scientists!
In addition to the author's appearances and the Kickoff event, libraries throughout the North Coast sponsored events attended by over 1,500 people!
