“I’m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.” — Jango Fett. We’re sure Nebraska-born Clayton Anderson would agree with Jango, as he shares his story of growing up to become an astronaut. Anderson’s memoir, “The Ordinary Spaceman” (University of Nebraska Press, 2015) was the winner of the 2016 Nebraska Book Award for Creative Nonfiction.  As part of our permanent collection it’s available for check out to anyone. Just ask our amazing Information Services staff! This title is published by the University of Nebraska Press, which we collect from for our state document program.

“Clayton Anderson is no ordinary astronaut, and this is no ordinary book. It is an uncompromisingly honest rendering of a challenging and fulfilling life by someone with a singular dream and the moxie to pursue it to success.”

—Roger Lemkpe, Lincoln Journal Star
