CHRIS HADFIELD: AN ASTRONAUT'S GUIDE TO LIFE ON EARTH

THURSDAY, APRIL 16, RALEIGH

QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS—The first Canadian to walk in space, Col. Chris Hadfield is a former commander of the International Space Station and worked extensively with experiments on the effects of low gravity on the human body. His book, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth: What Going Into Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything, which is now out in paperback, chronicles his years of training and space missions—and how those experiences apply to everyday ones that are more grounded, literally and figuratively. Purchasing the book from Quail Ridge gets you into the signing line, or you can just hear the reading for free. 7 p.m., free, 3522 Wade Ave., Raleigh, 919-828-1588, www.quailridgebooks.com. —Zack Smith
