Intrepid Book Club

Join fellow veterans, service members and military family members online for a lively book discussion! The Intrepid Book Club meets quarterly for a two-hour facilitated discussion with an introduction related to the Museum’s collection and crew. Books are a mix of fiction and nonfiction, all related to military or military family experiences. Copies of the books are available for free on a first-come, first-served basis and advanced registration is required.

The Intrepid Book Club is free for all current and former service members and their families, spouses and partners.

The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe

Intrepid Book Club is going back in time to the early days of the Space Race by reading Tom Wolfe’s classic The Right Stuff. Since its publication in 1979, this account of early test pilots and the Mercury 7 has been an inspiration for generations of astronauts. Come join fellow veterans and their loved ones to discuss these men’s daring journeys into space. This is an in-person program at the Intrepid Museum. There will be a brief tour of the Museum focused on Intrepid’s historic connection to the book. Refreshments will be served.

“One of the most romantic and thrilling books ever written about men who put themselves in peril.” —The Boston Globe

“An exhilarating flight into fear, love, beauty, and fiery death . . . Magnificent.” —People
