Vanille Chicago, a female-owned bakery in Chicago, will be transformed into Snow White’s Happy Apple bringing to life one of the storylines from the book series “Princesses with a Twist.”

The books imagine what happens after ‘happily ever after,’ and in one of them, Snow White overcomes her fear of apples to open and run a successful apple-themed bakery.

The event is designed to show a correlation between the storyline and the successful businesswomen that exist in real-life. In the books Snow White overcomes her fear of apples to open a successful apple-themed bakery. Along with Sophie Evanoff, owner of Vanille, Virginia Wolff, Chicago’s premiere event florist, will participate in the event by helping convert the space for the day.

A real-life Snow White will do readings from the book beginning at 7 am and every other hour throughout the day.

“Princesses with a Twist,” expands the female narrative by showing life is not all about finding a prince. Happiness is defined in several different ways, not simply through marriage.

Kid-friendly activities will take place throughout the day and 10% of all sales for the day will benefit the book’s Kickstarter campaign. Specialty, apple-themed treats will be available for one day only.

Date: Wednesday, July 22
Time: 7 A.M.-6 P.M.
Location: Vanille Chicago, 2108 N. Clark St. in Lincoln Park
