Drop-In Signing with Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen and Robbyn Smith
Friday, July 13th, 2018
Author and illustrator duo Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen and Robbyn Smith will be stopping by Brilliant Books for a brief signing!
Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen is an artist known for his work on children's books including The Legend of Sleeping Bear, as well as the Hazel Ridge Farm children's book series written by his partner, Robbyn.
Robbyn Smith is an author and wildlife rehabilitator. Her books include Adopted by an Owl and Itsy Bitsy & Teeny Weeny, both illustrated by Gijsbert and based on true stories of rehabilitating animals at Hazel Ridge Farm. You can get a behind the scenes look at life on Hazel Ridge Farm, and meet Jackson, the real-life owl who inspired Adopted by an Owl, in the video below.
In their free time, Gijsbert and Robbyn visit schools, nature centers, and other locations to share their love of animals and nature.
Because this visit will be brief, to be sure you can get a personalized autographed copy, please preorder a copy of your preferred book and let us know how you'd like it inscribed.
