Author of Defying the Limits: Lessons from the Edge of the Universe

**Note this event is FULL. Seating is first come, first serve. There may be limited standing room. Thank you for your interest. Dr. Dave Williams is an astronaut, aquanaut, jet pilot, ER doctor, scientist, and CEO. He has received the Order of Canada and Order of Ontario, flown to space twice, and lived in and worked on the world's only undersea research habitat, and he's positive that you, too, can defy the limits—come and hear how!

About the book

An inspirational, uplifting, and life-affirming memoir about passion, resilience and living life to the fullest, from Dr. Dave Williams, one of Canada’s most accomplished astronauts.

Dr. Dave has led the sort of life that most people only dream of. He has set records for spacewalking. He has lived undersea for weeks at a time. He has saved lives as an emergency doctor, launched into the stratosphere twice, and performed surgery in zero gravity.

In Defying Limits, Dave shares the events that have defined his life, showing us that whether we’re gravity-defying astronauts or earth-bound terrestrials, we can all live an infinite, fulfilled life by relishing the value and importance of each moment. (Excerpted from Simon & Schuster)
