Robert Kurson is the New York Times bestselling author of "Shadow Divers" and "Pirate Hunters." His most recent book, "Rocket Men," details the story of NASA’s boldest and riskiest mission, Apollo 8, mankind’s first journey to the moon on Christmas 1968. Esquire said, “Kurson belongs on the same shelf as Hampton Sides and Erik Larson—authors whose meticulously researched nonfiction reads as swiftly and compelling as an adventure novel.” Kurson’s dynamic talks include photos, video and props.
