Why We Need Darkness: Paul Bogard

  • 03.20.18
    7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Using light inefficiently wastes money and energy, harms our health and our environment and robs us of the stars. On the day of the spring equinox, Paul Bogard will discuss the wonder of a dark night sky, the issue of light pollution and some possible solutions. He is the author of The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light and an assistant professor of creative writing and environmental literature at James Madison University in Virginia.

Dudley’s Bookshop will have copies of Paul’s book available for purchase at the event and there will be a book signing after the talk. Dudley’s will donate a portion of book sales to the Museum.

7:00 pm, doors open 6:00 pm

Museum café will be open for food and drinks
Members $7, non-members $12
