About Guest Author-Illustrator Vera Brosgol & the Book!

Freda is devastated when she can’t eat all the delicious blueberries she’s picked. She has to wait a whole year before they’re back, and she doesn’t want to lose them! Then Gran reminds her that they can save blueberries in a jar, as jam. So Freda begins to save all her favorite things. But it turns out that saving everything also means she can’t enjoy anything, and Freda realizes that some things are best saved as memories.

Vera Brosgol was born in Moscow, Russia, in 1984 and moved to the United States when she was five. Her books include the graphic novels Anya's Ghost and Be Prepared, and the 2017 Caldecott Honor picture book Leave Me Alone! She drew storyboards for the animated films Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls. She lives with her dog, Omar, in Portland, Oregon, where she puts all kinds of things into jars every summer.
