Book Signing for Space Oddities Oct. 1 at Book Exchange
Daphne author Joe Cuhaj will be signing copies of his latest book, Space Oddities: Forgotten Stories of Mankind’s Exploration of Space on Saturday Oct. 1 from 1-3 p.m. at the Book Exchange in Foley.
We all know the stories of the space race in the 1960s – the first men to orbit the earth, the first men on the moon, the tragic stories of accidents that claimed the lives of astronauts in the quest for space. But there are stories behind those stories. The new book, Space Oddities by author Cuhaj brings these obscure, off beat, and forgotten tales to life. Stories
like the long forgotten tale of espionage revolving around the country’s first satellite, Explorer 1. The Soviet Union’s plan to set off a nuclear explosion on the moon if they were the first to send humans to the lunar surface all in an effort to prove to the world that they had actually landed and it wasn’t a hoax. And there are more stories like these covered within the book’s 238 pages.
Other titles by Cuhaj includes two historic non-fiction books about Alabama’s port city of Mobile: Hidden History of Mobile and Baseball in Mobile. A new non-fiction historical book, Everyone’s Gone to the Moon, will be published early 2023. More author info: joe-cuhaj.com.
