Sasha Sagan will visit to discuss her first book, For Small Creatures Such as We: Rituals for Finding Meaning in Our Unlikely World. Part memoir, part guide and part social history, the book is a luminous exploration of Earth’s marvels that require no faith to be believed.
Sagan was raised by her secular parents, astronomer Carl Sagan and writer and producer Ann Druyan. They taught her that the natural world and vast cosmos are full of profound beauty and that science reveals truths more wondrous than any myth or fable.
When Sagan became a mother, she began her own hunt for the natural phenomena behind our most treasured occasions, 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.
