Join Plimoth Patuxet Museums in presenting the launch event for acclaimed bestselling children's book author/illustrator Jan Brett's first national tour in four years on Friday, November 24.
Author of over 40 picture books with more than 44 million in print, Jan is renowned for her exquisite art which is universally recognized as being among the finest in children's books today. Her detailed and iconic illustrations are often inspired by her many extensive research expeditions, whether it be to Norway, Botswana, Japan, or India. Jan's work has been chosen as "Best Children's Books of the Year" by The New Yorker, Parents, Redbook, and many others. She has been featured in publications like Romper, The Boston Globe, Travel + Leisure, The Los Angeles Times, and more.
Jan Brett will do a 20-30 minute drawing demonstration and presentation before hosting a book signing. It will begin at 2:30. Everyone is invited to come to the presentation and receive as many signed bookplates as they request.
Come enjoy the experience of this special book launch combined with additional themed activities including seasonally-inspired cookies and a storied book walk through the Museum's fields to explore the ways people and animals have kept warm through New England winters. Meet some of the kinds of animals featured in this author's new collection of winter favorites!
The first 100 families in line for this event will receive a free signed Jan Brett poster!
