Jan Brett's Winter Wonderland Tour with Prairie Lights Books

Jan Brett's Winter Wonderland Tour with Prairie Lights Books

The Davenport Public Library and Prairie Lights Books are excited to welcome Jan Brett back to Davenport, Iowa for a stop on her 2023 Winter Wonderland Tour! The best-selling author and illustrator enchanted crowds in 2015, and we can't wait to see what magic she will bring us this December. Registration is not required, but encouraged. Registered attendees will receive reminders and updates via email. 

At 10:00 am, Jan Brett will do a 20-30 minute drawing presentation in the meeting rooms before moving to the new Children's Area for a book signing. Prairie Lights Books will have plenty of books to purchase to accommodate everyone at the event. If you purchase your book(s) ahead of time, please keep your receipt. Jan will do her very best to sign all the books that time permits. The number she can sign per family depends on how many people come.  If time does not permit her to sign every book, special signed bookplates featuring her artwork will be on hand. Families will receive a free signed Jan Brett poster while supplies last!
Jan’s Tour Bus 
Jan’s tour bus will be parked in the Library’s parking lot at 9:00 am. It is wrapped in artwork from her books. Your family is welcome to take a photograph next to the bus.
Meet Hedgie
Hedgie, Jan’s favorite friend from The Mitten and The Hat, will be visiting the Library as well.  Please bring the kids to have a photo taken with Hedgie.  
Our celebration will include activities and cookies in the children’s area and a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30 am for the Davenport Public Library’s Grand Opening of the Enhanced Children’s Area. The new space includes interactive nature-themed kiosks and wall panels that promote imagination and early literacy skills. In addition to Jan Brett & the ribbon-cutting, the Davenport Public Library welcomes the German American Heritage Center for a presentation on German Winter Holiday Traditions at 11:30 am in the meeting rooms.
Come out to the Davenport Public Library | Eastern on Saturday, December 2, to see Jan Brett and enjoy the day!
