Our favorite space explorer is back at Fundamentally Toys! Join us for this special book signing event with retired astronaut Clayton Anderson.

 

We're asking attendees to not all arrive at 3:30pm. We want to avoid crowding and keep a good flow going.

Pre-order your copies of "A is for Astronaut" and "Letters from Space" written by Clayton Anderson.

"A is for Astronaut" Soar from Astronaut to Zulu Time! Topics cover the history of NASA, science, and practical aspects of being an astronaut using fun poems for each letter paired with longer expository text in the sidebars. Perfect for science buffs, budding astronauts, and astronomy lovers of all ages.

"Letters from Space" Astronaut Clayton Anderson couldn't mail letters back to Earth from the Space Station. They would have burned up on reentry! But if he did they'd be full of weird science, wild facts, and outrageous true stories from life in space. Complete with hysterical illustrations by Susan Batori. Also includes even more interesting information on space, astronauts, and living among the stars.
