“Out of this world” news from author Suzanne Slade Astronaut Annie is going to Space!! 

Chicago’s Daily Herald reporter Doug T. Graham writes: “A rocket on a resupply mission will carry the book to the space station where it will be read aloud by an astronaut. So far, about 20 other children’s books have been read by astronauts in orbit, all on video for children to watch.”

That article led to a bit on Chicago’sWBBM radio station, too.

Astronaut Annie is going up on the SpaceX CRS-17 launch. According to this schedule (which changes), the rocket will blast off from Cape Canaveral sometime in March 2019.
