Space for this event is limited, so we will be providing tickets as a reservation until capacity is reached, especially in consideration of giving late-arriving customers a chance to meet the authors. Ticket may be used as a $1 coupon towards the purchase of any new Jane Yolen or Heidi Stemple books in stock and is valid all day on the day of the event. To the limit of supplies, tickets can be reserved by contacting us by phone at 508-796-5613 during regular business hours, or in person at the bookstore during regular business hours until close of business on Friday, November 10th.
Jane Yolen has been called the Hans Christian Anderson of America and the Aesop of the 20th Century. She is a grandmaster author, as well as a poet, a teacher of writing and literature, and a reviewer of childrens literature. Her titles, such as Owl Moon, How do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, Briar Rose, and The Devils Arithmetic are classics of childrens literature.
Heidi Stemple didnt want to be a writer when she grew up. In fact, after she graduated from college, she became a probation officer in Florida. It wasnt until she was 28 years old that she gave in and joined the family business, publishing her first short story in a book called Famous Writers and Their Kids Write Spooky Stories. The famous writer was her mom, author Jane Yolen. Since then, she has published twenty books and numerous short stories and poems, mostly for children.
