Oceanside CA – Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), one of the nation’s largest booksellers and the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products, today announced the company will be teaming up with American Girl to present “ Truly Talented You,” an event for girls ages 8 and up, in Barnes & Noble Oceanside on Saturday, March 8, at 11 a.m. Through activities, journaling and crafts, this free workshop will help girls learn to recognize, appreciate, and celebrate their own special talents with the help of American Girl’s newest Girl of the Year, Isabelle Palmer. Isabelle is a dynamic, talented girl who loves dance and fashion design. When Isabelle doubts her skill as a dancer, she uses her love of design to remind herself that everyone’s talents are unique, and a person shouldn’t compare herself to others. Participants will also receive an American Girl poster of Isabelle.
American Girl, a leader in providing top advice books for girls, developed the events using content from the Isabelle book series by award-winning author Laurence Yep and several of their advice and activities books, which have been hugely popular with girls and parents at Barnes & Noble.
“American Girl is dedicated to celebrating the potential of girls ages 3 to 12 with fantastic resources,” Lisa Kovach, Community Relations Manager for Barnes & Noble Oceanside. “We’re thrilled to partner with American Girl on a nationwide event that will encourage girls to develop and celebrate their own special talents—and dream, grow, aspire, create and imagine.”
