TD Summer Reading Club 2024 – To the Stars

September 12, 2023

We are excited to announce our winning theme for the 2024 edition of TDSRC: To the Stars. Thank you to all who participated in the poll last spring.

The phrase “To the Stars” is only intended to guide those developing the program content; it is not intended to be used publicly. You can start saving your intergalactic inspiration, and we will share ideas on the staff site in the new year.

See below to find out how the theme has developed.


2024 Compelling Idea

Grab your astronaut suit and moon boots and hop aboard our spaceship as we blast off past satellites and asteroids, leaving the Milky Way behind us. Join us as we land on an undiscovered planet and gaze up at never-before-seen star constellations before catching a comet and letting it carry us to galaxy clusters far beyond this world. We’ll bravely peer into the enigmatic void of a black hole and be amazed by the luminous galactic core of a quasar.

When we’re tired from our interstellar travels, we’ll return home to our cozy books and beds where we can gaze out the window to the night sky and contemplate our unique place in this vast and wondrous universe.
