American Girl Saige Albuquerque Event

Fans of the Saige American Girl series can meet the author in Albuquerque this week, at an event for kids at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.

Jessie Hass, author of the book series featuring Girl of the Year, Saige Copeland, is at the Balloon Museum in Albuquerque this Friday May 10, in an event that runs from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.  The books Saige and Saige Paints the Sky are about the little girl (and the American Girl Saige doll character) who loves hanging out on her grandma’s ranch in Albuquerque,  where she paints and rides horses and apparently spots lots of hot air balloons. (If you’ve actually read the books and can tell us more, please feel free to comment in the box below!)

In the meet-the-author and storytelling event on Friday, you can also enjoy activities including making art, and seeing live horses. Girls can dress up to suit the Saige theme too, if they like – as a cowgirl or an artist perhaps.

Of course you can buy the book too at the event, co-sponsored by Bookworks, and get Jessie Haas to sign it. That would be super-special for any little girls who love that series!

The American Girl: The Year of Saige event requires the regular Balloon Museum admission fee:

  • Adults:  $4, or $3 for New Mexico residents. Take NM resident ID to get the $1 off admission!
  • Seniors aged 65+:  $2
  • Children aged 4 – 12:  $1
  • Kids aged 3 and under get in free!

Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum is at 9201 Balloon Museum Dr NE.

–Tania. FYI this post contains Amazon affiliate links so you can see more about American Girl Saige. However, I’d encourage you to buy the book from Bookworks at the event itself – that way you can get it signed by the author!
