Authors & Events
Emily Butler is the eldest of seven children and grew up hiding behind the sofa so that she could read her books in peace and quiet. (It was never quiet.) She finished high school in Brazil, worked on a kibbutz in Israel, practiced law in New York City, catered weddings in London–and was never without a book in her backpack or briefcase. Emily recently moved to Utah with her husband. They live in an old house that is stuffed to the gills with three lovely but disobedient children, and every sort of book.Jennifer Thermes is an acclaimed children’s book author, illustrator, and map illustrator. Her books have received a starred review from Kirkus and been included in several Bank Street College lists. She lives and works in an eighteenth-century farmhouse in Connecticut, where occasional visiting mice obligingly pose for drawings. Jennifer is fascinated by nature, history, and the idea of traveling in a balloon.
