Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Amelia Bedelia on January 29

Marvel at the passage of time by passing the Amelia torch to your kids at this fete with the series's current author.

Come celebrate the (exact!) golden anniversary of perennial kid favorite Amelia Bedelia with a reading led by Herman Parish, the nephew of creator Peggy Parish and the current author of the series. He'll be stopping by Bank Street Bookstore on Tuesday, January 29, at 10:30am for a reading and signing of Amelia Bedelia: Fiftieth Anniversary Edition (Greenwillow Books; $15), a facsimile of the original Amelia Bedelia—published on January 29, 1963, that includes archival photos, vintage ads, sketches and a timeline illustrating how the character has changed over the years.
