What if Cinderella turned her love of glass slippers into a successful glass shoe factory so every woman in the kingdom could have a pair? This is the basic premise behind Princesses with a Twist, a new book series that reimagines fairy tale princesses as entrepreneurs, chemists, and doctors. Written by Dr. Ameila Case, a mother of two young girls, Princesses with a Twist seeks to empower young girls using familiar characters.
Dr. Case has launched a Kickstarter for the project, and if you are in Lincoln Park today, you can stop by Vanille Patisserie for a Snow White-themed, all day event. Called Snow White’s Happy Apple Pop-Up Bakery, the event features apple-themed sweets, as well as readings from the Snow White’s Happy Bakery every other hour until 6 p.m. Ten percent of sales of the themed bakery items will directly support the Princesses with a Twist Kickstarter!
