Jan Brett Demonstration & Book Signing

With over 40 million books in print, JAN BRETT’S exquisite art is universally recognized as being among the finest in children’s books today. She has brought lovable characters in extraordinary settings to millions of youngsters, their teachers, and parents.

THE MERMAID (G.P. Putnam’s Sons) is a striking, underwater version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as only Brett could create starring a mermaid and three octopuses. Brett is famous for taking extensive research trips to all corners of the globe for her books and including special cultural flourishes in her highly detailed art. THE MERMAID took her to the reefs off the coast of Okinawa, Japan, and she describes her experience much like Alice going down the rabbit hole to find another world.

Join Jan Brett at the Upcountry History Museum on Thursday, November 30, at 10:00 am as she presents a drawing demonstration and then signs your Jan Brett books. To purchase your ticket, please visit the Museum Gift Shop where you can buy your $15 ticket along with a copy of "The Mermaid." Additional tickets may be purchased and you can choose any Jan Brett book title that is for sale in their Gift Shop. The program is scheduled to begin at 10:00 am with the book signing to follow. Doors will open at 9:30 am.

Due to capacity, no group sales. Individual ticket sales only.
