Saturday, May 24 — Get Your Nerd On with Buzz Aldrin at Barnes & Noble!
American astronaut and living legend Buzz Aldrin is a vital advocate for the continuing quest to push the boundaries of the universe as we know it. A pioneering astronaut who first set foot on the moon as a member of Apollo 11, Aldrin is also an aerospace engineer who designed an orbital rendezvous technique critical to future planetary missions. Aldrin has a vision, and in his new book Mission to Mars he plots a path to send humans to the Red Planet by 2035.
Join us for a very special engagement with Dr. Aldrin at the Barnes & Noble at 960 S. Colorado Blvd, where the space icon will talk with fans and sign copies of his new book. Proceeds from sales of Mission to Mars will benefit The Big Brain Club.
The event blasts off at 10:00 a.m, when the Denver Museum of Nature and Science arrives to share their Rocket Works program for kids of all ages. Dr. Aldrin will speak (along with space journalist Leonard David) beginning at 1:00 p.m., followed by a book signing. We’re expecting a big turnout, so we recommend arriving early.
Please also note that there will be strict guidelines in place for this event, and no exceptions will be made. Please read the following guidelines very closely.
- Barnes & Noble will issue wristbands to customers on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Please purchase your copy of Mission to Mars before getting your wristband and entering the line. You will need to show your Barnes & Noble receipt in order to receive an autograph.
- The wristband is your entry to the signing line. Customers may not save spaces for others. All newcomers must join the end of the line upon arrival.
- Buzz will only sign copies of Mission to Mars — no memorabilia, photos, or other books.
- In the interest of time, Buzz will not personalize his autograph. He will sign his name only.
- Buzz will not pose for pictures, and no one will be allowed behind the table to take a photo.
- Time permitting, Buzz will continue to sign until the last person in line receives an autograph.
- Again, your Barnes & Noble receipt is absolutely required in order to receive a wristband and an autograph.
See you Saturday!
