 Join us for the next installment in our Seeding Futures Author Visit series Saturday, May 4, 10am-12pm featuring Roda Ahmed, author of Mae Among the Stars, and a free art activity led by our NCM team! 

Roda will conduct a reading and answer questions about her picture book inspired by the life of the first African American woman to travel in space, Mae Jemison. When Little Mae was a child, she dreamed of dancing in space. She imagined herself surrounded by billions of stars, floating, gliding, and discovering. Following the reading, Roda will be available to sign books and take photos. During the event you will be able to make space-inspired chalk drawings and take home an art activity where you can design and build the rocket of your dreams! 

This event will take place in Children’s Museum Park across the street from NCM. Museum admission is included with free registration to this book signing event, and the first 10 registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the book (limit 1 per family)! Joyride Bookshop will also be selling copies of Mae Among the Stars. 

Mae Among the Stars is geared towards elementary and middle school students, but all are welcome! 

Register now to secure your free spot! 

This event is an extension of NCM’s “Science Fiction Creates the Future” programming. Author visits in this exciting series will continue to feature books influenced by Octavia E. Butler.
