Gabrielle Giffords' Husband To Speak In Sioux Falls

Gabrielle Giffords' Husband To Speak In Sioux Falls
Astronaut Mark Kelly

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Astronaut Mark Kelly, husband of former U.S. Congresswoman and shooting victim, Gabrielle Giffords, will be in Sioux Falls in May.

Kelly will be the featured speaker for the 2014 Visitor Industry Luncheon May 13 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center.

Kelly became the center of international attention after the January 2011 assassination attempt on his wife. In their best-selling memoir, Gabby, the couple shares their story of hope and resilience with the world. The memoir has topped multiple best-seller lists, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Amazon.

In 2013, on the second anniversary of the Tucson shooting, Kelly and Giffords launched a political action committee aimed at curbing gun violence.

Kelly was selected as an astronaut in 1996. He flew his first of four missions in 2001 aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour, the same space shuttle that he commanded on its final flight in May 2011. He has also commanded Space Shuttle Discovery and is one of only two individuals who have visited the International Space Station four times.

Kelly was named one of Esquire’s 2011 "Americans of the Year."  Kelly has also written two children's books about the space explorations of a little mouse chosen for space missions, Mousetronaut: A Partially True Story and Mousetronaut Goes to Mars.

Tickets for the luncheon cost $40 per person. It's schedule for 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 13.
