A fun-filled and inspiring night out for all ages, don’t miss this riveting conversation with Canadian astronaut Dave Williams hosted by Paul Karchut and Wordfest.

Touching on the art of exploration, discovery, and what makes life worth living, Williams has set records for spacewalking, has lived undersea for weeks at a time, saved lives as an emergency doctor, launched into the stratosphere twice, and performed surgery in zero gravity.

His book, Defying Limits: Lessons From The Edge Of The Universe, is an inspirational, uplifting, and life-affirming memoir about being an astronaut and a doctor, an adventurer and an explorer of the world. The evening includes an on-stage interview followed by an audience Q&A and book signing.

Wordfest presents Dave Williams at 7:00pm on November 7, 2018 at the Engagement Lab, Memorial Park Library (2nd Floor, 1221 2nd St. SW).
