Neil Armstrong Biographer Working on New Book

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – The Alabama college professor who wrote Neil Armstrong’s authorized biography is working on another book dealing with the first person to walk on the moon.

A release from Auburn University says professor emeritus James Hansen is finishing a book that will include letters written to the Apollo 11 astronaut. The title is “Dear Neil Armstrong: Letters to the First Man from All Mankind.”

Hansen previously wrote “First Man,” which was made into a Hollywood movie of the same name released last year. Hansen wrote the book with Armstrong’s cooperation after developing a relationship with the famously private astronaut, who died in 2012.

Interest in Apollo 11 is high around its 50th anniversary, and Hansen says Armstrong got letters about his role for the rest of his life.
