Alice Metcalf was a devoted mother, loving wife, and an accomplished scientist who studied grief among elephants. Yet it has been a decade since she disappeared under mysterious circumstances, leaving behind her small daughter, husband, and the animals to which she devoted her life. All signs point to abandonment . . . or worse. Still Jenna--now thirteen years old and truly orphaned by a father maddened by grief--steadfastly refuses to believe in her mother's desertion.

Program: The History of the Moon

Apollo 11 Lunar Module from NASA Space Science Data Coordinated ArchiveWhere were you on July 21, 1969, when Neil Armstrong first stepped foot on the moon? Or were you not yet born? Come to our program on The History of the Moon this Saturday, July 22 at 10:30 am to help celebrate that historic event! Walter Kiefer, a scientist with the Lunar and Planetary Institute, will tell us—in layman’s terms—what we learned about the moon’s history through the Apollo program. He will also tell us about more recent NASA missions to the moon. This program is open to all ages, though the subject matter will appeal more to older elementary kids through 110-year olds.

Hope to see you there!
