It is with the greatest of pleasure that I can announce today that I will be appearing at the 2009 Edinburgh Literary Festival. I took the stage for the first time at the festival last year and spoke to 350 people about bringing astronomy to life for the general public. This year it is my pleasure to be sharing the stage with Rick Stroud (read more about him here) and talking about my latest book projects, including Galaxy from Quercus. I look forward to seeing you. Here’s the listing from the Festival programme:
“Stuart Clark & Rick Stroud, Popular Science, Tuesday 25 August 2009, 2.00pm, ScottishPower Studio Theatre. An extra-terrestrial hour! Come on an astounding illustrated tour of the wonders of the Milky Way with astronomy journalist Stuart Clark. And forty years after Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon, celebrate man’s relationship with the moon and all things lunar with Rick Stroud. Book now at www.edbookfest.co.uk or 0845 373 5888. Prices: (£9.00, £7.00)”
I shall also be reading the previous day at the Imprisoned Writers event, Monday 24 August, 5:30pm, Peppers Theatre. I have been invited to read an extract from the work of Melissa Rocío Patiño Hinostroza, who is currently on trial in Peru.
