I don't know if he'll be signing books and maybe that's what "appearance" means here, but Alan Bean will also be giving the Flagstaff Festival of Science Keynote presentation on September 25. This is at 7 PM at NAU's Prochnow Auditorium. See http://www.scifest.org/ .

Clear Skies Rick Tejera Editor SACnews, Public Outreach Coordinator Saguaro Astronomy Club Phoenix, Arizona <http://www.saguaroastro.org/> www.saguaroastro.org saguaroastro@xxxxxxx _____ From: Kim Poor [mailto:kimjpg@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, July 23, 2009 13:56 To: saguaroastro@xxxxxxx Subject: Moonwalker Booksigning Press Release Apollo 12 Moonwalker-turned-artist Alan Bean will be in Tucson August 2 to sign his new books PAINTING APOLLO. published by Smithsonian books, and MISSION CONTROL:THIS IS APOLLO, a middle-school level book illustrated by Bean. The signing will take place at the El Conquistador Resort in Oro Valley. These events follow the Apollo 40th anniversary frenzy as celebrations, books, and the popular media look back at the first moon landing by Apollo 11 on July 20, 1969. So amazing were the six moonlandings that those who were not born yet have a hard time believing ihey weren't an elaborate hoax, but it was verifiably real. Twelve men walked on the moon. #4 was Navy Capt. Alan Bean, who always had a fascination with art, particularly impressionism and Claude Monet. His paintings reflect this inspiration, rendering the gray Moon as little dabs of color. He took a "giant leap" of his own in 1981, quit NASA's shuttle program, and became a professional artist, to chronicle Apollo, the greatest technological achievement of mankind thus far-from the perspective of an artist. His one-man show at the National Air and Space Museum and his new books are a retrospective of his art. Although his autograph can fetch over $100, he will sign the books for free, if purchased at the show. This is Bean's only western states appearance.
