Book signings will take place after the presentation. Jan will do her very best to sign all of the books that time permits. The number of books that Jan can sign per family depends on how many people come to the signing. If time does not permit Jan to sign every book, we will have special signed bookplates featuring Jan’s artwork for all of the extra books. She is presenting in Memphis the next morning, and weather could be a factor. We will be distributing numbered tickets to families attending. Families who have pre-purchased books using the form attached will receive numbers in the first block of numbers.
