Children's Author Event with Marcie Flinchum Atkins
Children's and YA author Marcie Flinchum Atkins will read from her new children's picture book, Wait, Rest, Pause, Thursday, Nov. 7 at 5:30 pm at Book No Further. The book explores the science behind the many different ways plants and animals wait, rest, and pause to tough out the harshest conditions by becoming dormant.
Kirkus reviews called the book a "refreshingly original exploration of a physical process both common and important in the natural world."
Atkins taught fourth graders about dormancy before becoming an elementary school librarian. She holds an MA and MFA in Children's Literature from Hollins University. She lives with her family in Virginia.
