Join us for an evening of conversation with author Adam Lazarus featuring his newest book, "The Wingmen: The Unlikely, Unusual, Unbreakable Friendship Between John Glenn and Ted Williams."
“The Wingmen” tells the story of the fifty-year friendship between two American heroes - astronaut and U.S. Senator, John Glenn and baseball legend, Ted Williams - from their introduction while stationed in Korea for combat duty to their respective careers in the spotlight. Drawing upon an array of untapped resources – including many from the John Glenn Archives at Ohio State - Lazarus brings to life a friendship forged in shared service, dedication to success, and mutual respect.
Arrive early at 5 p.m. to enjoy light refreshments. At 5:30 p.m., our distinguished author, Adam Lazarus, will take center stage to share the story behind "The Wingmen." Following the talk, there will be a book signing and an opportunity to engage with the author.
This event is free and open to the public.
