The 411 on Richard:
Over the course of eight years, scholar-adventurer Richard Cohen (By the Sword: A History of Gladiators, Musketeers, Samurai, Swashbucklers, and Olympic Champions, 2002), literally and fervently chased the Sun.  On Wednesday, November 10, you can experience his remarkable journey for yourself—simply by showing up at the Upper West Side Barnes & Noble at 7PM, where Richard will be giving his first stateside reading from this fascinating new book: “CHASING THE SUN.”  Employing engaging anecdotes and interviews from his travels to over twenty countries, Cohen interprets what the Sun has meant throughout the ages—in mythology, physics, biology, geology, botany, astronomy, religion, politics, literature, and virtually all the arts—in an extraordinary work that is both intriguing and moving.
