Author Event - Janet Fox

Join us to learn more about everyones favorite . . . Super-Volcano? Local Author Janet Fox shares her first picture book Volcano Dreams, illustrated by Marlo Garnsworthy. Lyrical prose and luminous paintings lead readers on a tour of the Yellowstone supervolcano, from the wolves, elk, bears, and mountain goats that roam its surface to the fiery depths of its magma chamber. Volcano Dreams knits together the vibrancy of the Yellowstone ecosystem with its explosive history, placing the everyday lives of its creatures within the context of geological time. Janet Fox’s poetic text takes us to the root of it all – the ‘sleeping giant’ of magma responsible for the Yellowstone landscape – and Marlo Garnsworthy’s evocative paintings capture the awe of natural forces at work in our nation’s oldest national park. This great new book is great for inquisitive readers aged 5-9.

Janet lives in Montana, surrounded by mountains and in the company of my husband and our rambunctious yellow lab. I hike, garden, knit, travel, sing (yes, I can sing, and thought I was going to go pro at one time), but most of the time you’ll find me doing what I love best: writing.
