Author To Visit Barnes & Noble

Martha Lemasters will be at the Barnes & Noble store in Wellington on Saturday, April 9 at 7 p.m. to sign copies of her recently released memoir, The Step.

Lemasters’ memoir deals with her first-hand account of her years working for IBM at the Kennedy Space Center as a public relations writer on the Apollo program during the 1960s and 1970s. It is the first book written about the Apollo program from a woman’s perspective — and from the perspective of one of the contractors, not NASA.

“It’s almost as if the Apollo team, at least all the contractors who worked on Apollo, are the team that time has forgotten,” she said.

The Step is also about Lemasters’ journey to finding her own success during those years. A divorced mother of three daughters, she spent years proving herself and prevailed over an entry-level job and related women’s issues in the workplace to finally realizing her dream of becoming a writer.
