Voyages and Discoveries—Cross-Generational Reflections on the Significance of Space Exploration.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Virginia residents shared their memories and stories across generations, and in teams of two submitted their work in a celebratory contest hosted by The Center for Educational Partnerships at ODU, the Virginia Grant Space Consortium, the ODU Libraries, and Slover Library.

The winning entries now display in the Slover Library Forum, free and open to the public. Entries are also available in a digital anthology as part of Norfolk Public Library’s collection on Biblioboard.
