Why We Can’t Quit American Girl Dolls, A Virtual Author Talk

July 25 @ 6:30 pm

FREE

Allison Horrocks, co-author of the book Dolls of Our Lives: Why We Can’t Quit American Girl, will present a virtual talk on the origins and allure of American Girl dolls. Horrocks, with co-author Mary Mahoney, host the popular podcast “Dolls of Our Lives,” which delves into the history and millennial nostalgia of the American Girl brand. The book takes the podcast one step further, combining history, travelogue and memoir to answer unanswered questions such as: What did American Girl Inventor Pleasant Rowland hope to say to children with these dolls? Was girl power something that could be ordered from a catalogue, described by a magazine, or modeled in the plot lines of books? And how – and why – did this brand shape an entire generation? Find out the answers to these questions and more by registering for this virtual program at youressexlibrary.org.
