Meeting Room A+B+C (274)

Sasha Sagan, daughter of astronomer Carl Sagan, will visit to discuss her first 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.

Sasha Sagan was raised by secular parents, the astronomer Carl Sagan and the writer and producer Ann Druyan. They taught her that the natural world and vast cosmos are full of profound beauty, that science reveals truths more wondrous than any myth or fable.

When Sagan herself became a mother, 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 without relying on religious framework.

As Sagan shares these rituals, For Small Creatures Such as We becomes a moving tribute to a father, a newborn daughter, a marriage and the natural world – a celebration of life itself, and the power of our families and beliefs to bring us together.

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac's Backs – Books on Coventry.


Sasha Sagan joins us for this event as part of the Mandel JCC Cleveland Jewish Book Festival.
