Winner Description: 
for The Man Who Went to the Far Side of the Moon: The Story of Apollo 11 Astronaut Michael Collins by Bea Uusma Schyffert, translated from the Swedish by Emi Guner
Winner Blurb: 

Reminiscent of a scrapbook, this extraordinary book chronicles what Michael Collins did, saw, and thought about in space. What was it like to go to the moon and be the only man in the mission not to walk on the surface?  Collins orbited the moon 14 times, while surrounded by 701 power switches and 20 pounds of checklists. Through fascinating facts, quotes, checklists, original drawings, and photos taken both in space and on Earth, the book tells how the astronauts prepared for their historic journey, what they brought with them, and what they left behind.
