A children’s book, The Story of How the Constellation ‘Hoot the Owl’ Began, was written and Illustrated by Anna Todd (2017), a 2nd grade student at Rose Witcher Elementary School, El Reno Public Schools, located in El Reno, Oklahoma. The book developed in collaboration with Stacey Stephenson and was inspired by the Galileo's World exhibition (backstory).
The story of Galileo’s trial in 1633 intertwines two crucial earlier episodes:
1. Galileo’s encounter with the Inquisition in 1616; and
2. Publication of Galileo’s Dialogue on the Two Chief Systems of the World in 1632.
