Join us for a reading with Sasha Sagan, joined on-stage by Harvard University chaplain Greg Epstein, from her new book For Small Creatures Such as We. Part memoir, part guidebook, and part social history, For Small Creatures Such as We is the first book from the daughter of Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan—a luminous exploration of Earth’s marvels that require no faith in order to be believed.

 

Sagan grew up learning that the natural world and vast cosmos are full of profound beauty, that science reveals truths more wondrous than any myth or fable. When she became a mother herself, she began her own hunt for the natural phenomena behind our most treasured occasions—from births to deaths, holidays to weddings, anniversaries, and more—growing these roots into a new set of rituals for her young daughter that honor the joy and significance of each experience; of the natural world, of life itself, and the power of our families and beliefs to bring us together.
