Carl Sagan's 82nd birthday on November 9

Today's book display gives a sense of perspective, with post-Election Day thoughts tempered by a longer view.  There are nearly 20 books by or about Sagan in the library, many now on display across from the science library circulation desk.
Listen to Sagan's 'Pale Blue Dot' speech, as suggested by Adam Frank, in NPR Cosmos and Culture
