About Paul Bogard: A native Minnesotan, Paul grew up exploring the forest and watching the stars near a lake in the northern part of the state. Today, Paul loves to read picture books with his two-year-old daughter, Amalie, in their south Minneapolis home, and to take her out under the moon and stars at their northern Minnesota lake cabin.
Paul Bogard is also the author of The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light, shortlisted for the PEN/E. O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award, and The Ground Beneath Us: From the Oldest Cities to the Last Wilderness, What Dirt Tells Us About Who We Are. He is the editor of Let There Be Night: Testimony on Behalf of the Dark, a collection of essays by twenty-eight writers on the value of darkness and the costs of light pollution; author of numerous articles and essays; and a noted speaker about the importance of natural darkness. A graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, he is currently an associate professor of English at Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
