Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
Kids, parents and grandparents, mark May 12 on your calendars for an evening of great stories and fantastical pictures. That's when South Milwaukee children's author Janet Halfmann along with fellow author Gibbs Davis and children's book illustrators Carol Schwartz and Jeff Miracola will entertain young and others with tales and art at the South Milwaukee Library from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. If that isn't incentive enough, the evening will include games, prizes and cookies.
The authors and illustrators will also have their books available for sale and signing. Among those treasures are:
"Little Skink's Tail", "Seven Miles to Freedom", "Wackiest White House Pets", "Flying Bats", and "Monster Isle."
The library is located at 1907 10th Avenue, South Milwaukee. For further information, call (414) 768-8195. Sounds like a fun time. Hope to see you all there!
