David Baron, the author of the forthcoming "American Eclipse," will speak and sign books at the Gen. John A. Logan Museum at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 18.
Baron will discuss the book, "American Eclipse: A Nation's Epic Race to Catch the Shaw of the Moon and Win the Glory of the World," and, as an avid eclipse observer, will share information on what to expect during the upcoming Aug. 21 total solar eclipse.
Baron is a journalist, author and broadcaster who has spent his 30-year career largely in public radio. He has witnessed five total solar eclipses, and has crossed the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia to do so. "American Eclipse" tells the story of pioneering scientists James Craig Watson, Maria Mitchell and Thomas Edison, who in 1878 gathered in the American West to witness a total solar eclipse, which darkened the Wild West from the Montana Territory to Texas.
