6 p.m., Chasing Space: An evening with Leland Melvin, '86

Camp Concert Hall
Modlin Center for the Arts

As part of its 25th anniversary year, the Jepson School of Leadership Studies welcomes back 2008–09 Leader-in-Residence Leland Melvin, '86, for a discussion of his new memoir, Chasing Space: An Astronaut’s Story of Grit, Grace, and Second Chances.

Chasing Space traces the former NASA astronaut and NFL wide receiver’s “personal journey from the gridiron to the stars.” Reflecting on community, perseverance, and grace, Melvin shares how he overcame adversity to “live out an uncommon destiny.”

A reception and book signing will follow the event in Booth Lobby. This event is open to the public.
