At this free event for children, Nancy will showcase her book THE BIG ECLIPSE being used by schools and libraries all over Oregon. We'll talk about how eclipses work, discuss why it's important to "Be Wise, Protect Your Eyes", and do a fun craft around this rare astronomical event.

Participants will also receive materials to take home to learn even more about the eclipse.
