Drawn to books: Children’s author Jan Brett comes to Leavenworth Sunday

It was the hottest night of the summer when Jan Brett had a wintery idea. “I work late into the night, but I could hardly work because it was just so hot. And this idea came to me: People have a Santa Claus, but how about animals? Do they have a Santa Claus? My imagination ran away with me.” And when Brett’s imagination runs away with her, a best-seller usually follows.

Here is a list of the holiday films coming soon to a theater near you.
