Sasha Sagan in conversation with Michaela Kalowski
Sasha Sagan + Michaela Kalowski
#About the event
BWF is proud to present Sasha Sagan, author of For Small Creatures Such as We, in conversation with Michaela Kalowski.
Daughter of Ann Druyan and Carl Sagan, Sasha grew up immersed in the belief that the natural world and vast cosmos are full of beauty. When Sasha became a mother, she began her own search for meaningful rituals and looked into the already well established rituals of people all over the planet. This conversation will be on her reflections for finding wonder.
Sasha Sagan is a writer whose work had appeared in The Cut, O, the Oprah Magazine, Lit Hub, and beyond. Her first book 'For Small Creatures Such As We' explores how science has informed rituals and celebrations, drawing inspiration from the work of her parents, Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan.
