Library Open Afternoon: Mary Proctor’s Stories of Starland
11 October 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Mary Proctor (1862-1957) was an astronomy lecturer and author, combining scientific facts with poetry and imagery to inspire children and adults all over the world with a life-long love of astronomy. She was one of the first women to be elected to the Royal Astronomical Society in 1916. To celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, the library of the Royal Astronomical Society invites you to drop in between 2pm and 5pm to look at a selection of Mary Proctor’s recently rediscovered magic lantern slides which she used in public lectures, as well some of her many books. Other popular astronomy books by women will also be on display.
