Booking to the Stars with Emily Levesque

Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to be welcoming author Emily Levesque to their virtual event space! See inside the most powerful telescopes in the world, explore the future of one of the most ancient and inspiring scientific disciplines, and more in Levesque's new book The Last Stargazers.

While this event is free, we do ask that you register in advance. Attendees can select "Watch on Facebook" and watch live on the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page or they can register to receive a link to the Zoom meeting, where they can interact with the author directly. Space in the Zoom meeting is limited.

From the lonely quiet of midnight stargazing to tall tales of wild bears loose in the observatory, The Last Stargazers is a love letter to astronomy and an affirmation of the crucial role humans can and must play in the future of scientific discovery. In this sweeping work of narrative science, Levesque shows us how astronomers in this scrappy and evolving field are going beyond the machines to infuse creativity and passion into the stars, and inspires us all to peer skyward in pursuit of the universe’s secrets.

We hope to see you at the event!
