The Bucyrus Elementary School was selected as one of 23 stops on a nationwide book signing bus tour for best-selling children’s Jan Brett. The Bucyrus event will begin at 5:00 p.m. in the Elementary School auditorium Dec. 2.

Bucyrus Elementary School librarian Diane Kaple submitted a proposal in May for a contest to host the author. Brett will give a 20-minute presentation, and then sign books for 2 hours the evening of the event. This event is free and open to the public.

“We will be teaming up with Bucyrus Public Library and the Mansfield Barnes & Noble Book Store for this very special event,” Kaple said. “Barnes & Noble will be selling books that night, and the BES Library will receive a percentage of the sales and will receive a gift card from Barnes & Noble to purchase books for the school library.”

The tour is for Brett’s newest book, “Gingerbread Christmas,” scheduled to be released in October. For more information about this very special event, please contact the Bucyrus Elementary School at 419-562-6089 or email Diane Kaple at dkaple@bucyrusschools.org.
