Mary Stewart Adams is a Star Lore Historian and host of the weekly public radio program and podcast “The Storyteller’s Night Sky” and author of the richly illustrated book The Star Tales of Mother Goose ~ For Those Who Seek the Secret Language of the Stars. Through her research in spiritual science and her education in literary arts, Mary has developed a unique, humanities-based approach to understanding our relationship with the stars. Her work is further augmented by an extensive knowledge of ancient mythologies and fairy tales, which she relates to the research and ideas borne of contemporary culture, in order to keep the human being at the center of our thoughts and ideas regarding the cosmos. As a global advocate for starry skies, Mary led the team that established the 9th International Dark Sky Park in the world in 2011 at the Headlands in Mackinaw City, which later led to the state of Michigan protecting 35,000 acres of state land for its natural darkness. Mary has traveled extensively in fulfillment of her mission to safeguard the human imagination by protecting our access to the night sky and its stories, and has received numerous honors for her work.
