Children's Author Jan Brett Is Coming to BPL November 19
New York Times best-selling author Jan Brett will sign copies of her new book Cinders: A Chicken Cinderella at the Central Library on Tuesday, November 19, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Books-A-Million will have books for sale.
Brett’s children’s books include highly-detailed art work of loveable hedgehogs, chickens, and other animals. Special chickens and hedgehogs will be on display during this event. Brett will also discuss her art work. The event is free.
Brett is touring the nation on a decorated bus, which will be parked outside of the library for fan pictures. Autographed posters will go to the first 100 in line.
With more than 38 million books in print, Brett is one of America’s most popular children’s book artists/authors. Her latest book takes the classic fairy tale of Cinderella and casts chickens as the characters. It tells the story of Cinders, the most-picked-on hen in the flock, becoming the belle of a prince chicken’s ball. Inspiration for the book came from Brett’s own flock of award-winning chickens. It’s the perfect stocking-stuffer for the holidays.
The New Yorker, Parents, Redbook and other publications have named Brett’s books as “Best Children’s Books of the Year.’’ Brett lives in Norwell, Mass.
