The first 100 families in line will receive a free signed Jan Brett poster and we also welcome families to take a photograph next to the tour bus, which will be wrapped in artwork from “The Turnip.”  So please arrive early and join us for this fun and free event.  Books will be available for purchase and Jan will autograph after her presentation, as long as time permits.
