Save This Date!

On Friday, November 11, 2011 author/illustrator Jan Brett will be visiting Ann Arbor and stopping at The Library for a program from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. She is touring to promote her new book, Home for Christmas. This title will be released on November 1st.

Ms. Brett tours with a big bus decorated with her drawings. The bus will park beside the Library on William St. She'll do a short program in our Multi-Purpose Room and then she'll meet with her fans and sign books. Nicola's Books will be selling Ms. Brett's books that evening.

There will also be the opportunity for kids to have their picture taken with Ms. Brett's character Hedgie the Hedgehog.


My kids will be so excited - we have been fans for years! Thanks for organizing this, AADL!

I'm perhaps more excited than any 35 year old who has no kids should be, but I think this is just awesome!! I love Ms. Brett's books and am on her mailing list. I will DEFINITELY be saving the date and am looking forward to meeting her and seeing the bus.

One question though. Will we need to purchase our books that night in order to have them signed or can I go get the new book when it comes out on November 1st and just bring it with me?

Thanks for putting together such an wonderful event with a brilliant and talented author/illustrator!

Wow! We have a great library.
