Please join us at the Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor on Thursday, July 11th at 7PM for a very special event with award winning sciene fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson and professor of astrophysics Adam Frank. KSR's newest novel is "Red Moon," which takes place in the near future when the moon has been colonized by China and the United States and it details their struggle for control. While Adam's book is "Light of the Stars: Alien Worlds and the Fate of the Earth" and it's a scientific look at the possibility of life on other planets. These two talented authors will be having a fascinating discussion that will cover a whole range of topics, and so this is an event that any sci-fi fan should attend! They will be signing their books after the talk.
