My #libraryhaul to celebrate Juneteenth, Pride Month, and the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Which to read first? (Books in the background are husbands, not mine!)

bookishkris Martha Ackman is a professor at my alma mater, but I‘ve heard great things about The Prince and the Dressmaker, so I‘d go with either of those! 2mo

I picked this book up during a visit to Kennedy Space Center, and I am upset that more people don‘t know about this story. A must-read for anyone interested in the early space program!
