Paper Bag Princess Day

By Annick Press Date: May 23, 2023 Tags: Paper Bag Princess Day

Paper Bag Princess Day is an annual celebration to help librarians, teachers, and booksellers spread the message of empowerment to readers of all ages during Women’s History Month.

It takes place the first Saturday of March, on the first weekend before International Women’s Day (March 8), with schools celebrating during the first week of the awareness month. Over 15,000 people have signed up to participate since Annick Press launched the campaign in 2020 to mark the 40th anniversary of our beloved classic The Paper Bag Princess. We send out a limited number of printed event kits for Paper Bag Princess Day, but makes a free digital event kit available for everyone who signs up.

What people are saying about Paper Bag Princess Day and what The Paper Bag Princess means to them:

“I have read this book with hundreds of children over my 25 years of working in libraries, camps, and schools. The message continues to resonate and delight with every reading. Don't be a Bum!”—Kathleen T., Sherburne-Earlville Elementary, Sherburne NY

“As a teacher turned Youth Librarian for the last 25 years, these books have always been a staple in my planning. The Paper Bag Princess, with its amazing massage of female empowerment is an essential tool in creating an impressive message for all ages. It is and will always be one of my favorites to share!”—Karyn S., Pasco County Libraries- Starkey Ranch Theater, Library, and Cultural Center, Odessa FL
