Delaware Humanities provides educational outreach, special projects, and funding opportunities to bring Delawareans together. We connect cultural, educational, and civic institutions statewide to provide public events that enhance our understanding of who we are, where we’ve been, and where we are going as individuals, communities, and citizens of Delaware.

In Magnificent Desolation, Apollo 11 Astronaut Buzz Aldrin recalls his life from preparing for the moon landing to battling depressing and alcoholism after his return home.  He tells his story in the touching, humorous, and lively way only capable of Buzz Aldrin.

Join us for a discussion of this book at the New Castle Public Library.  This discussion, led by Delaware Humanities’ Literature and Medicine facilitator Sarah Bucic, is the final event in our year of DEstination: Space programming and the first event in 2020 for our Literature and Medicine program.

Registration is requested.  Register online or by emailing or calling Delaware Humanities.
