What: A Seed Is Sleepy: Book Talk with Author Dianna Hutts Aston

Where: Library Auditorium

Registration is required for this event and will begin on April 15th at 9 AM.


This program is part of the second annual Hot Springs Book Festival which takes place on Friday, May 26th & May 27th at the Garland County Library.

Writing non-fiction books begins with two words: I wonder. What lays eggs besides birds? How does an acorn become an oak tree? Why are some eggs pointy and some freckled? All the questions that spring from, “I wonder” might just become a book! In this book talk, we will discuss curiosity and imagination with children’s author Dianna Hutts Aston, finding out the answers to “I wonder.”

Aston is the award-winning author of many internationally-acclaimed books celebrating the awe and wonder of nature. Her science series, illustrated by Sylvia Long, includes An Egg Is Quiet, A Seed Is Sleepy, A Shell Is Cozy and many more.

She is also the author of The Moon Over Star, a Coretta Scott King Honor book illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. Shortly after taking office, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama selected the book to read to school children in the nation’s capital.

You can learn more at Aston’s website, www.diannahuttsaston.org.

The Hot Springs Book Festival is hosted by the Garland County Library with support from the Literacy Council of Garland County and National Park College Adult Education.
