Author's Early Work
Jan Brett made a visit to Sioux Falls. I looked too excited in the photo, so I had to crop myself out of it - but I did say hello! We visited about one of her early books - St. Patrick's Day in the Morning, and I commented how it was interesting to see how her work is evolving. Checked out the publication date for that book - all the way back to 1983. Yet, it's great to see original reading material out there - a story of persistence & sharing cultural traditions for St. Patrick's Day (written by Eve Bunting & illustrated by Jan Brett)!
