It’s going to take some serious juggling of my soccer-mom schedule on Saturday but I really hope to bring my daughter to Millbrook for Jan Brett’s appearance at Merritt Bookstore. One of the nation’s foremost author-illustrators of children’s books, Brett will present her latest work, The Three Snow Bears, at 10 a.m. at the store at 57 Front Street in Millbrook.
Jan Brett has more than 33 million copies of her books in print, including The Mitten and Trouble with Trolls, which were a part of our bedtime reading rituals. She lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up but during the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills -- I hope she reads HVC magazine when she's there.
