Fran Manushkin will visit Maple Street School on February 3 to talk to students!  She'll talk about her new book and her life as a writer.


You can order copies of Fran’s books through Greenlight Bookstore! Fran will sign your books after her presentation and students can pick them up at the end of the day. Click on the book below to order.


1) The online ordering option for author signing and school pickup is open through January 22 only! Online orders placed after January 22 cannot be picked up at the school; such orders will be treated as regular orders and can be picked up in the store or shipped.

2) At checkout, choose the options "Pick up in store" and "Pay online". This will mean you do not need to pay for shipping (books will be delivered to Maple Street for you). Orders MUST be paid for online in order to be fulfilled.

3) At checkout, you MUST note "Fran Manushkin - Maple Street" in the Order Comments to make sure your order is processed correctly.  Please also note any personalization request (i.e. "to Mary", "Happy Birthday George", etc.)

4) Only the titles on the lists below are eligible for pickup at the author visit. Orders for other titles can be processed for store pickup or shipping but cannot be picked up at the school.
