Writing About the Universe, A Thousand Words at a Time

Author Carolyn Collins Petersen was tasked with the awesome job of writing about astronomy and space physics in short bites for a general audience. Her successful Astronomy 101 book came from the publisher with a request to “keep it short and good.” Carolyn will share some tales of the cosmos and the stories behind how they got into the book, Astronomy 101: From the Sun and Moon to Wormholes and Warp Drive, Key Theories, Discoveries, and Facts about the Universe. Book sales and signing to follow.
