[Books]

On Thursday evening, March 18, 2010, Bronx-born astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, host of Nova, Science Now, and author of the best seller, "Death by Black Hole," will discuss his latest book, "The Pluto Files" at Pace University's downtown Manhattan campus, across from City Hall, in the Multipurpose Room on level B, at 6 PM.

The author provides this description of The Pluto Files: "Gathered here in one place is a record of Pluto's rise and fall from planethood, given by way of media accounts, public forums, cartoons, and letters I received from disgruntled schoolchildren, their teachers, strongly opinionated adults, and colleagues."

Share an evening with Dr. Tyson, scientist of the people, who has been the invited guest of heads of state, national and international, and yet he can engage the imaginations of children. Learn life-sustaining truths from an astrophysicist whose delivery skills combine humor, poetry, literary references and telling insights into human behavior. Open and free to the public and with a light buffet, this is a  wonderful opportunity to celebrate a growing understanding of our universe.

The Pluto Files and other titles by the author will be available for signing.
