Journalist, author, and broadcaster David Baron will speak at the Bob Kirby Branch on Thursday, June 22 at 6:00 p.m. His new book, American Eclipse: A Nation’s Epic Race to Catch the Shadow of the Moon and Win the Glory of the World, tells the true story of a total eclipse that crossed the American frontier in 1878 and lured many of the era’s great scientists—including Thomas Edison—to the Wild West. Baron has spent his thirty-year career largely in public radio. He has worked as a science correspondent for NPR, a science reporter for Boston’s WBUR, and science editor for PRI’s The World.
