The Astronaut Wives Club

Monday, July 29, 2013

As America's Mercury Seven astronauts went into space, the media focused on their brave young wives, and overnight they were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and became fashion icons. Lily Koppel talks about who they were and how they came to provide support and friendship to each other for more than 50 years. Her book The Astronaut Wives Club tells the story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest names in American history.
