In preparation for the Music City Solar Eclipse this August, we're excited to introduce a special Eclipse Speaker Series featuring discussions with scientists from the community! From the weird and wonderful impact of eclipses on science and culture to the amazing science research planned around this year's eclipse, this casual discussion series is sure to fascinate. Spend an evening exploring all things eclipse with remarkable scientists and experts who are changing the world. Free and open to the public.


SPEAKER: David Baron, author of American Eclipse

Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome David Baron to the Adventure Science Center as he discusses and signs American Eclipse.

To understand eclipse chasers, it helps to be one. In American Eclipse, David Baron travels back in time to profile three outsized personalities hell-bent on making their names at the dawn of American astronomy. The result is a gripping and entertaining account of the frontiers of science set on the literal frontier, and it comes just in time for the first total solar eclipse to traverse the entire continental U.S. in 99 years.

David Baron, an award-winning journalist, is a former science correspondent for NPR and former science editor for the public radio program The World.  An incurable umbraphile, whose passion for chasing eclipses began in 1998, he lives in Boulder, Colorado.
