On Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8 PM, renowned author Dava Sobel will sign copies of her books. Regular admission applies.
At 7 PM, Sobel presents a talk about her latest book, “A More Perfect Heaven: How Copernicus Revolutionized the Cosmos.” In her talk, Sobel will discuss why she chose to treat the period of the Copernican Revolution as a play-within-a-book. Her drama, ”And the Sun Stood Still,” imagines how Copernicus was convinced to publish his theory of a Sun-centered universe. After a short Q&A session, Sobel will sign copies of this book.
