JoAnne Wetzel - Mermaid School (Corte Madera)

Clare's preschool storytime welcomes special guest JoAnne Wetzel, who will read her latest picture book!

In Mermaid School, Molly and her new friend, Squirt, have fun, make friends and learn a lot on their first day at their underwater school.

JoAnne Stewart Wetzel grew up as an Air Force brat. Her first picture book, The Christmas Box, which was named a Noteworthy Book for Children by the Bank Street College of Education, was about the life of a military family.  When she was 7, she saw Peter Pan on Broadway and still thinks something magical might happen at any minute in a play. She is the author of two children's books on theater, Onstage/Backstage and Playing Juliet.  In high school and college, she swam on synchronized swimming teams and spent a lot of time underwater, where Mermaid School is set. She was a children’s librarian and taught at the elementary, high school and college level. She has worked in public relations, as a magazine columnist, and served as the Regional Advisor for SCBWI’s San Francisco/South chapter.
