Reading & Book Signing
Bryan Brewer wrote the first edition of Eclipse in anticipation of the total solar eclipse on February 26, 1979. He was fortunate enough to witness totality on that day and has been hooked on eclipses ever since. He updated the second edition in 1991, and led several eclipse tours in the 1990s to view totality in Brazil, Antigua, and Germany. He has now released the third edition, Eclipse: History. Science. Awe., with full color illustrations, plus maps and details about the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse. This new edition also includes the foreword to the first edition by Frank Herbert, author of Dune.
Bryan Brewer wrote the first edition of ECLIPSE in anticipation of the total solar eclipse on February 26, 1979. He was fortunate enough to witness totality on that day, and has been hooked on eclipses ever since. But because it would be difficult to build a career as a writer around such infrequent events, he moved on to other endeavors in communications, technology, and business. During the 1980s he was involved in evangelizing the then nascent technology of CD-ROM, co-authoring The Compact Disc Book, contributing writings to numerous magazines and books, and presenting educational seminars. Bryan also produced the audio compact disc Self-Guided Relaxation by Joel Levey.
