Astronomer Andrew Fraknoi: The Eclipse!
The sky event of the decade is coming -- and so is Dr. Andrew Fraknoi! The noted astronomer will be at the library on Thursday, July 13, to entertain & educate us with an illustrated, nontechnical talk, as he gets us ready for the "all-American eclipse" that's coming up on August 21. About Andrew Fraknoi Andrew Fraknoi is the chair of the astronomy department at Foothill College and the co-author of a new children's book about eclipses When the Sun Goes Dark (2017, NSTA Kids.) He serves on the 2017 Eclipse Task Force of the American Astronomical Society, training teachers and librarians to act as guides for the public as the August eclipse approaches. He has appeared regularly on local and national radio. This free event is made possible in part by funding from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. http://menlopark.org/Adults
