Bookbug is Kalamazoo’s independent bookstore committed to curating, discussing and celebrating new books and hosting preferred events for adults and children.[/note]

Jan Brett is one of America’s most beloved children’s author/artists, with over 40 million books in print. Her illustrations are loved for their classic beauty and life-like images and she is coming to Kalamazoo!


Her latest book is GINGERBREAD CHRISTMAS (Putnam) and she is a fantastic baker (featured by the King Arthur Flour blog) and collects antique gingerbread molds.

In GINGERBREAD CHRISTMAS, Gingerbread Baby takes his gingerbread band to the Christmas festival where they are a hit until their yummy aroma reaches the children. Suddenly, it is time to make an escape or get devoured. The Gingerbread Baby leads the audience on a chase through a Swiss village to the smartest hiding place ever!

As fans have come to expect, Brett will embark on a 23-market national tour aboard a “rock-star” style bus wrapped in artwork from her latest book.
