We are recycled stardust. Everything we love and everything we see is recycled stardust. And we’re only here because the heavens and the stars are not immortal. ~ Connie Barlow



Connie Barlow is an educator, an author, the curator of The Great Story website, and an evolutionary humanist.  She is the prolific writer of popular science books including The Ghosts of Evolution (Basic Books), Green Space, Green Time: The Way of Science (Copernicus Books), Evolution Extended: Biological Debates on the Meaning of Life (MIT Press), and From Gaia to Selfish Genes: Selected Writings in the Life Sciences. 

I am in awe of Connie.  Her passion for sharing this story has given her an amazing energy to create so much that helps people understand this epic story.   I admire her tremendous courage to do the right thing and teach “outside the box.”
