The Sonoma Speakers Series is taking note of the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing, which took place on July 20, 1969. Their recognition takes the form of a visit from Sunita “Suni” Williams, one of a handful of women astronauts who, while she hasn’t yet gone to the moon, has done a record seven walks in space and commanded the International Space Station’s Expedition 33.

Sunita “Suni” Williams is a pilot, engineer, runner, swimmer, lover of pets and an astronaut. She is also a great role model for anyone interested in space exploration.

She will speak at Hanna Boys Center Auditorium on Monday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m.

Williams will be introduced by Sonoma resident and former NASA astronaut Rusty Schweickart and will be in conversation with her Annapolis classmate and friend, Bill Angeloni, also a Sonoma resident and board member of the Sonoma Valley Education Foundation.
