Towson University College of Fine Arts and Communication graduate CAP Saucier heads to space in her new book “Explore the Cosmos like Neil deGrasse Tyson,” using the astrophysicist’s life as a launchpad for catapulting children into exploring the universe.
The former Johns Hopkins pediatric nurse received a bachelor’s degree in art from CoFAC in 1997. She decided to write about Tyson after meeting him at an Explorer’s Club event.
“I had written about where we came from on land and thought I’d write about where we came from in space,” [Saucier] explains. Her first book was a biography of Dr. Donald Johanson, the paleoanthropologist who discovered the “Lucy” skeleton.
Saucier is working now on her next project, a book about the water, told through the story of a female scientist (she hasn’t yet announced who she will feature).
