Lunch Lady

Lunch Lady

Through December 31, 2014

Worcester Historical Museum is excited to exhibit original art from the popular Lunch Lady Book series by Jarrett J. Krosoczka. The Lunch Lady Book series is ten graphic novels that tell the story of the lunch lady who “Serves Justice and Lunch!” The books were inspired by Jarrett’s own lunch lady, Jeanne, from Gates Lane School.

Jarrett, a Worcester native, started drawing from a young age and while attending Gates Lane he began creating his own books. Jarrett says he owes much if his successes to his grandparents, Joseph and Shirley Krosoczka, who took him in at age three and gave him an opportunity to see a different life for himself. They could see his love of drawing and enrolled him in art classes at the Worcester Art Museum. It was through his experiences there and later a high school class on picture book art and storytelling, that set him on a determined course to create a new path for himself.
