The Universe in Verse
Created and hosted by writer Maria Popova, The Universe in Verse is a charitable celebration of science and the wonder of reality, winged with poetry and music.
On the eve of the 2024 total solar eclipse, we will gather under Waterloo Park’s starlit skies to reverence the majesty and mystery of Earth’s most sublime experience of the cosmos. Maria will take us into the science of the Sun and the Moon, of gravity and relativity; the discoveries of Newton, Kepler, and Galileo; the stories of the historic eclipse expedition that catapulted Einstein into celebrity and of the forgotten woman who published the first popular science book on eclipses while editing Emily Dickinson’s poetry.
Crowning the evening will be a special music surprise!Get Tickets Here
