No Time to Waste: An Afternoon Event with Carolyn Armstrong

Join us at The Book Stall (811 Elm Street in Winnetka) on Tuesday, July 16th at 4:30 PM for a fun and informative afternoon program with middle-grade author Carolyn Armstrong. She will be discussing her new book, No Time to Waste, a heartfelt eco-adventure about youth activism and the complexities of climate change. The exciting second installment in the award-winning “Eco Warriors” series will transform readers’ eco-anxiety into eco-action, inspiring a new generation of youth activists. You can make a difference! This book is perfect for kids ages 9 to 12. There will be a trivia contest, with prizes, and eco-friendly refreshments will be served!

More About the Book: Fresh from their Arctic adventure of saving polar bears, eleven-year-old twins Sydney and Sierra visit a sea kelp habitat off the coast of California. While scuba diving, Sydney meets her animal contact, a sea otter named Sunny, who enlists Sydney’s help. Ocean plastic pollution has entangled another otter, and it needs to be rescued. Even if the girls are able to release the otter from its plastic prison, there’s a much greater threat in the ocean.

Together, they’ll have to use all of their wits, ingenuity, and determination to somehow help their animal friends. But as they try and fail again and again, Sydney has a sinking feeling that she’s in over her head. One thing is clear: there’s literally no time to waste.

More About the Author: Carolyn Armstrong celebrates Earth Day every day! She's an award-winning author of middle grade works, including the novel Because of Khalid, and the first book in the Eco Warriors series, At the Edge of the Ice. A former educator and now an imperfect environmentalist, she blends her love of travel and animal well-being into her stories. She encourages everyone to be advocates for planet Earth. It’s as easy as refusing a plastic drinking straw (and doing it every single time). Carolyn has received multiple awards for excellence in independent publishing, including the Spark Award from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). At the Edge of the Ice made the 2024 Green Earth Book Awards’ Recommended Reading List for best environmental literature for children and young adults. Head to to sign up for her monthly newsletter, called The Earth-Friendly Edition for People Who Love the Planet. Also on the website: an educator guide, free downloads, blog posts, and more!
