Meet Saige, the New American Girl
The Christmas after I turned five, all I asked for was an American Girl Doll. No more, no less. My wish was granted that cold morning, and Samantha Parkington joined the family. Over the years, that doll was seriously loved. So much so that when my Mom took me on a trip to Chicago for my 10th birthday, Samantha had to stay behind at the American Girl Place Doll Hospital to get a head transplant (yes, that's a thing in the doll world). In 2001, American Girl began producing a "Girl of the Year" doll that could only be purchased that year. 2013's doll, Saige Copeland, is the second doll to hail from the Land of Enchantment (the first, Josefina, is described as living on a rancho near Santa Fe). Saige is described as "A spirited girl whose passions inspire action, who lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the hot air balloon capital of the world." Tomorrow, Miss Haven, who hosts a weekly story time at the Barnes and Noble on the Westside, invites enthusiasts to come "meet" the latest addition the American Girl family. The free event runs from 11 a.m. to noon. Barnes & Noble, Westside • Sat Mar 23 • 11 am-noon • FREE • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
