Last year, AKR hosted a 12-hour book launch for her memoir, Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal (Dutton), at the Bean in Chicago's Millennium Park. Mayor Rahm Emmanuel decreed that Aug. 9 would henceforth be known as “Amy Krouse Rosenthal Day” in Chicago, citing AKR’s "steadfast commitment to literature, film, and our city." On this, the first AKR day since her passing, we celebrate those gifts she gave to her community by gathering, remembering, and creating.
