About the author: Jan Brett, the acclaimed, #1 New York Timesbestselling author-illustrator, beloved for her folk-tale retellings such as The Mittenand The Three Snow Bears, returns this fall with a reimagining of a Christmas classicin JAN BRETT’S THE NUTCRACKER(Putnam Books for Young Readers; on sale November 2, 2021). With over 42 million books in print, Jan Brett is renowned for her exquisite art which is universally recognized as being among the finest in children’s books today. In JAN BRETT’S THE NUTCRACKER, she makes this familiar story her own, by setting it in snowy Russia and adding whimsical touches to favorite elements of the traditional ballet. 

About the book: When Marie and her brother Fritz receive a special Christmas nutcracker from their uncle, Marie immediately feels something magical. This feeling is only the beginning of the epic adventure she goes on with the Nutcracker—into the cabinet, through the battle with the mice, and finally to the magical land of the Sugar Plum Fairy.“Of the many hours I have spent listening to music in Symphony Hall in Boston, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcrackerbrings the most vivid imaginings,” says Jan Brett.“With E. T. A. Hoffmann’s 1816 story The Nutcracker and the Mouse Kingand happy memories of the Nutcracker ballet as my guide, this book is my visualization of Tchaikovsky’s enchanted music...The music also reminds me of trips to Saint Petersburg, so a Russian setting seemed perfect...I hope this book transports readers through magical sights and sounds as the music of The Nutcracker Suite does for me.”The Norman Rockwell Museumin Stockbridge, MAwill alsofeature Jan’s work in a special solo exhibit“JanBrett: Stories Near and Far" November 13th to March 6th 2022.

Our Greatest Journalists

$39.95
Description: 

The story of Oklahoma, the nation, and the world has been chronicled through the decades by men and women of diverse backgrounds and interests whose devotion to spreading the word has been recognized by the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame.

       In Our Greatest Journalists: Fifty Years of the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame, you will learn about the 468 inductees to date and those who have been award the organization's Lifetime Achievement Award. In all, more than 25 writers contributed to this book. Countless others contributed photographs. Most are Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame members themselves, connected closely to a fellow member or yearning to learn more about one they admire. Each had personal connections to the stories they told.

        You will read not only about the history of the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame, but also how its members helped shape Oklahoma's rich history. Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame members had many defining moments in their careers, from the assassination of John F. Kennedy and Watergate to the Penn Square Bank collapse and the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City.

         Most of all you will read about how the members of the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame embody the pioneering spirit in their own lives. Enough of the spirit to be chosen for Oklahoma's highest journalistic honor and their legacies forever remembered.

If you're in the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame, please call the store for a special price. 405-340-9202.

          (Proceeds from sales of this book will go to two funds: The Coronavirus Storytelling Project to help furloughed or displaced journalists or those in struggling news organizations. And the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to help University of Central Oklahoma students struggling financially because of the pandemic.)
