Special Appearance by Author Gretchen Day

Gretchen is a children's book author and a journalist. Her debut book, "Olivia's Tower: The Building Power of Cells" was inspired by watching her mom, a molecular biologist, work in a lab. Olivia's story is about the scientific process, and the parts of a cell, but most importantly it's a story about the excitement of learning about the world around us.
