Author of over 40 picture books with over 44 million in print, Jan Brett 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 globe-trotting adventures, whether it be to Norway, Botswana, Japan, or India. Jan Brett’s work has been chosen as “Best Children’s Books of the Year” by The New Yorker, Parents, Redbook, and others, and she has been featured in publications like Romper, The Boston Globe, Travel + Leisure, The Los Angeles Times and more.
For this year’s tour, Jan Brett will do a 20-to-30-minute drawing demonstration related to her bestselling picture book Cozy and talk about her research trip to Alaska to see the musk oxen. This will be followed by a book signing. Barnes & Noble Mansfield will have books available for purchase at the event. Meet Hedgie from The Mitten while you wait!
Jan will do her best to sign all books. If time does not permit, then she will provide as many signed bookplates as necessary for all books.
