Presentation and Book Signing

ADMISSION IS FREE - TICKETS REQUIRED

New York Times #1 Best Selling Author/Artist, JAN BRETT Creates a Magical Undersea World in a Retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears in THE MERMAID

With over 40 million books in print, JAN BRETT’S exquisite art is universally recognized as being among the finest in children’s books today. She has brought lovable characters in extraordinary settings to millions of youngsters, their teachers, and parents. THE MERMAID (G.P. Putnam’s Sons) is a striking, underwater version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as only Brett could create starring a mermaid and three octopuses. Brett is famous for taking extensive research trips to all corners of the globe for her books and including special cultural flourishes in her highly detailed art. THE MERMAID took her to the reefs off the coast of Okinawa, Japan, and she describes her experience much like Alice going down the rabbit hole to find another world.

Doors Open 9:30 a.m.

At 10:00 a.m. Jan Brett will do a 20 minute drawing illustration and presentation. A book signing will immediately follow.

All of Jan Brett’s books will be on sale, including her new book, THE MERMAID. We'll have plenty of books to purchase to accommodate everyone.

Please note that the first 100 families to arrive will receive a free signed Jan Brett poster, so get there early!

Jan will do her very best to sign all of the books that time permits. The number of books that Jan can sign per family depends on how many people come to the signing. If time does not permit Jan to sign every book, we will have special signed bookplates featuring Jan’s artwork for you to take home.

Pre-orders will not be signed when you pick them up, but if Jan is unable to sign your book at the event we will provide you with a signed book plate.
