The National Museum of Natural History invites you to attend an evening with astrobiologist, award-winning science communicator, and prize-winning author, David Grinspoon. Using a big-picture, planetary perspective, Grinspoon will describe the transformative role humans have played as he speaks about his new book Earth in Human Hands.
In a conversation with Kirk Johnson, Sant Director of the National Museum of Natural History, Grinspoon will suggest that our present moment is not only one of peril, but also great potential, challenging audiences to awaken to our role as a force of planetary change and become conscious shapers and caretakers of Earth.
Earth in Human Hands will be available for purchase and signing after the program.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase at Café Natural on the ground floor before the event.
