Homer Hickam - Don't Blow Yourself Up

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 - 5:00 PM

This remarkable memoir takes up after The Rocket Boys concludes and reads like a novel. It is chock full of laugh-out-loud brilliant humor, serious death-defying moments, as well as service to country and accomplishments that should take a dozen lifetimes!
Readers will find an American hero who won the Bronze Star in Viet Nam; became a master deep-sea diver and instructor; a NASA engineer who tutored astronauts about the Space Station; a leading paleontologist who made major discoveries of dinosaur bones, and so much more that boggles the mind.
All of this from a humble, small-town kid from West Virginia striving to do right.
HOMER HICKAM is the author of almost twenty books, including The Rocket Boys, an international best seller made into the blockbuster movie, October Sky. We invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to meet “The World’s Most Interesting Man”.

The event is free and open to the public.

You may purchase signed first editions of Don’t Blow Yourself Up ($27.00), signed hardcovers of The Rocket Boys ($28.00), and/or signed first editions of Carrying Albert Home, a hilarious story of Buddy Ebsen (The Beverly Hillbillies) giving Homer's mother an alligator ($25.95) to pick up at the event, pick up at the store after the event, or carefully wrapped and mailed worldwide by Clicking Here
