13-year old Bailey Harris is an author, speaker, and a secular activist. She is the author of the Stardust series of science books for young readers.
Bailey is on a mission to inspire a love of science and a sense of wonder about the universe, promote freethought, and work towards acceptance of scientific fact in society and government. She was eight years old when she was inspired to write her first book, a beautifully illustrated children’s book that presented sound science in a manner accessible to young readers and pre-readers.
Her first book, My Name Is Stardust, was released in 2017 and has sold thousands of copies worldwide. Follow-ups Stardust Explores the Solar System (2018) and Stardust Explores Earth’s Wonders (2019) have continued in that tradition, presenting concepts of astronomy, geology, biology and principles such as the Big Bang and evolution.
The success of the Stardust series of books has enabled Bailey to carry her message in person to people all across the United States. She has used this platform promote freethought and secularism and has been a featured speaker at conferences such as Freedom From Religion Foundation, DragonCon Skeptrack, and was most recently at Center For Inquiry’s annual CSICon 2019!
