The 2018 Thousand Oaks Reads: One City One Book is Rocket Men by Robert Kurson. Kurson, who also wrote the critically acclaimed bestsellers Pirate Hunters and Shadow Divers, tells the story of the incredibly dangerous fight to get the Apollo 8 mission to orbit the Moon off the ground in 1968.  Set amidst a backdrop of political and social unrest, the dedicated men and women of NASA look less like heroes and more like miracle workers as they beat impossible odds to get the spacecraft in the air – and around the moon -- successfully in just four months.
