Jane Yolen

As you may know, Jane Yolen will be visiting the Watertown Free Public Library THIS FRIDAY at 3:30 pm to promote her new book, "Sea Queens"!

Come to the library to hear Jane Yolen speak, check out our display of her books, and get your very own copies of her books!

This prolific author has written works for children, teens and adults with such famous titles as "Owl Moon" and "How do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?"

"Sea Queens" is a book about women pirates around the world. In this prolific book, Yolen tells the fascinating stories of 12 women pirates, from Artemisia, the admiral-queen of Persia in 500 BC to Madame Ching, who sailed the South China Sea in the early 1800s.

We hope you are able to come meet this famous author, and are so proud to have Jane Yolen at the Watertown Free Public Library!
