Join me at the Atlanta Science Festival!
In partnership with Emory University, A Capella Books, & the Carter Presidential Library, I'll be speaking about plant hunting adventures & leading a tea blending activity! Book signing to follow!
I’m so excited to be participating in the annual Atlanta Science Festival! This 15-day event runs from March 10-25, 2023 and features 150 events across Atlanta and one big party at Piedmont park! I’m thrilled to partner with Emory University, A Capella Books, and the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library to offer a fun evening of storytelling from my plant hunting expeditions, book sales and signings of The Plant Hunter: A Scientist’s Quest for Nature’s Next Medicines, and a flavorful herbal tea blending activity!
Praise for The Plant Hunter
Readers who pick up The Plant Hunter with the idea of a traditional, staid monograph detailing flora around the world will encounter a biography of love, loss and discovery that is most emphatically not traditional or staid. . . .Quave’s storytelling is quite simply refreshing.
Cassandra Quave takes us on a fascinating and deeply personal journey to seek out modern medicines from the botanical world. As a scientist she is scrappy and tenacious, and as a writer she is eloquent and disarmingly honest. Fans of Hope Jahren’s Lab Girl will devour this engrossing narrative about Quave’s quest for the next cure.
—Amy Stewart, bestselling author of The Drunken Botanist
[A] spirited, globe-trotting debut . . . Nature-minded readers will find themselves immersed in—and inspired by—Quave’s poignant tale.”
Cassandra Quave is a woman with incredible grit and courage.
—Temple Grandin, bestselling author of Thinking in Pictures
