make a mess with Brazee (at the manatee)

Our friends from Brazee Street Studios  will come to blue manatee for this special make a mess art story time!

We'll read Snow by Uri Shulevitz, and create two pieces of art based on what we see in the story! Not only will you make a fun (and potentially messy) piece with Miss Kelli to take home with you, but you'll also use safe glass components to make a beautiful piece of glass art with Miss Chelsea!

Author Sarah Cannon signs ODDITY

Meet author Sarah Cannon, who will discuss and sign Oddity, her new book for middle-grade readers (ages 8-12). 

Oddity releases on November 28th, and copies of the book will be available at blue manatee and here on our website!

About Oddity:
Welcome to Oddity, New Mexico, where normal is odd and odd is normal.
Ada Roundtree is no stranger to dodging carnivorous dumpsters, distracting zombie rabbits with marshmallows, and instigating games of alien punkball. But things haven’t been the same since her twin sister, Pearl, won the town’s yearly Sweepstakes and disappeared . . .
Along with her best friend, Raymond, and new-kid-from-Chicago Cayden (whose inability to accept being locked in the gym with live leopards is honestly quite laughable), Ada leads a self-given quest to discover Oddity’s secrets, even evading the invisible Blurmonster terrorizing the outskirts of town.
But one of their missions goes sideways, revealing something hinky with the Sweepstakes . . . and Ada can’t let it go. Because, if the Sweepstakes is bad, then what happened to Pearl?
