RIDGEWOOD, N.J. – A former NASA astronaut and NFL wide receiver will be appearing in Ridgewood Tuesday evening.

Leland Melvin will be at Bookends Bookstore for a celebration to launch his memoir, "Chasing Space: An Astronaut’s Story of Grit, Grace and Second Chances."

The book “offers an examination of the intersecting role of community, perseverance, and grace that align to shape our opportunities and outcomes. Chasing Space is not the story of one man, but the story of many men, women, scientists, and mentors who helped him defy the odds and live out an uncommon destiny,” Melvin’s website states.

The event will take place on Tuesday, May 23, at 6 p.m. at Bookends Bookstore, 211 East Ridgewood Ave.
