Sally Ride: Inspiration from America's First Woman in Space
Based on her biography of Sally Ride, America’s first woman in space, Sherr will discuss how Ride broke through a quarter-century of white male fighter jocks when NASA chose her for the seventh shuttle mission, cracking the celestial ceiling and inspiring several generations of women. Having had exclusive insights from Ride’s family, friends, partner, and by being the ABC reporter who covered NASA during this transformative time, Sherr shares Ride’s inspiring journey, including her scrupulously guarded personal life. She draws from Ride’s diaries, files, and letters to create a rich biography and presentation of a fascinating woman whose life intersected with revolutionary social and scientific changes in America. Her revealing portrait is warm and admiring but unsparing. Sherr makes this extraordinarily talented and bold woman, an inspiration to millions, come alive.
