Black White & Read All Over presents Jan Brett

Over the river and through the tunnel, Jan Brett’s 2008 Gingerbread Tour bus is headed to Oakland. Join Jan Saturday morning, November 1st, at 10:30, in the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Lecture Hall as she serves up her new book Gingerbread Friends and gives us a glimpse into the creative mind behind her well-researched stories and intricately detailed illustrations. After her presentation, join Jan in the Children’s Department where she’ll sign copies of her books while you snack on cookies and punch.

For their 2008-2009 series Pittsburgh Arts and Lectures will be bringing children’s book authors and illustrators to us through March 21st. More information about Black White and Read All Over.

By the way, Jan’s website is a treasure trove of reproducibles for teachers and librarians. Writing, painting, designing flash cards; when does the woman find time to sleep?
