Interstellar Story Time with Sandra Nickel

Author Sandra Nickel will join Old Firehouse Books for a virtual storytime featuring her new book, The Stuff Between the Stars: How Vera Rubin Discovered Most of the Universe. She will be joining us on Saturday, March 20th at 9:30am MST. The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free. The first 10 book orders will receive a signed bookplate!

Vera Rubin was one of the astronomers who discovered and named dark matter, the thing that keeps the universe hanging together. Throughout her career she was never taken seriously as a scientist because she was one of the only female astronomers at that time, but she didn’t let that stop her. She made groundbreaking and incredibly significant discoveries that scientists have only recently been able to really appreciate—and she changed the way that we look at the universe. A stunning portrait of a little-known trailblazer, The Stuff Between the Stars tells Vera’s story and inspires the youngest readers who are just starting to look up at the stars.

Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).

Please email events@oldfirehousebooks.com if you have any questions.


We look forward to seeing you at the event!
