When: Wed., Aug. 9 2017
Back in August of 2016, Amy Krouse Rosenthal held a 12 hour book launch of her memoir, Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal, at the Bean. August 9 was then declared "Amy Day," a celebration of AKR's gorgeous, compelling, and empathetic artistic contributions. Now, the community of friends and fans that admired the artist come together to celebrate the first Amy Day after AKR's passing. Beginning at the Bean, AKR's sister Katie Forelich, children's book illustrator Tom Lichtenheld, and countless other participants will remember and honor the remarkable woman.
