American Girl is proud to announce what's sure to be the most
exciting debut in the company's 25-year history: two different
historical characters, Cécile Rey and Marie-Grace Gardner, sharing
one six-book series set in 1850s New Orleans. In conjunction with
Cécile and Marie-Grace's debut, American Girl has partnered with
world-renowned musician and actor Harry Connick, Jr. and his
13-year-old daughter Kate on an original song "A Lot Like Me",
inspired by the new characters' story. The song is available
exclusively on iTunes, with all proceeds benefiting the Ellis
Marsalis Center for Music in New Orleans.
On Aug. 29, American Girl Denver will host a special Cécile and
Marie-Grace Charity Ball where guests will be among the first to
celebrate our new historical characters, plus enjoy New
Orleans-themed desserts, learn ballroom dance steps, make fun
crafts, and more. A portion of the proceeds from the ball also
helps support the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music. Here are the

The new characters officially launch at the store on August 30th
with a debut event from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. featuring free
crafts and giveaways. Given the excitement that always surrounds
the introduction of our new characters, I hope you'll consider this
news for a calendar mention. Please call me at 608-830-4214 or
