Andrews McMeel Publishing partners with Sandra Boynton on bestselling calendars

Kansas City, MO (November 30, 2021) – Andrews McMeel Publishing (AMP) will be the exclusive publisher and distributor of 2023 calendars by bestselling cartoonist and author Sandra Boynton, announced Kirsty Melville, AMP publisher and president. AMP will offer four Boynton calendars: Every Day’s a Fabulous Holiday, My Family Calendar, My Family Desk Planner, and a perpetual calendar, My Family & Friends Birthday Calendar. Boynton’s wonderful and immediately recognizable calendars have been perennial bestsellers for the past 40 years.

“I have long admired Sandra’s work and creative brilliance,” said Melville. “We are thrilled to be working with her and to continue to share her extraordinary talents with the world.”

“Andrews McMeel is the absolute perfect home for my calendars,” Sandra Boynton said. “I chose AMP because of their legendary lively collaborations with cartoonists, and their decades-long commitment to publishing great quality calendars and books. I’m honored to be part of it all.”

Beloved for her deft writing, captivating characters, and sublime humor, Boynton has been a popular cartoonist, multiple New York Times bestselling author, music producer, and director in a career spanning more than four decades. The calendar lineup specifics are:

  • Every Day’s a Fabulous Holiday 2023 wall calendar features Boynton’s engaging characters and wonderful wit highlighted in 365 quixotic holidays. From “Static Electricity Day” (January 9) to “Eat What You Want Day” (May 11) to “Wear Something Gaudy Day” (October 17), the eclectic and entertaining mix of daily celebrations and copious characters is signature Boynton.
  • My Family Calendar 17-month 2022–2023 wall calendar is ideally suited to the busy family of today. Revolutionary when Boynton introduced the roomy vertical format in 1996, it has been an annual bestseller ever since. With its school-year start in August 2022, the refreshed 2023 edition retains the favored features renowned in the original—including ample space for family appointments and events, and more than 300 stickers to make organizing fun for the whole family.
  • My Family Desk Planner 17-month 2022–2023 monthly/weekly organizer calendar provides dedicated space for the organizer as well as every member of the family. Each weekly spread features a quintessentially-Boynton illustration, with additional space for notes. Monthly spreads, stickers, and perforated lists for shopping and to-do lists are also part of the package. The planner begins in August 2022.
  • My Family & Friends Birthday perpetual calendar will ensure birthdays are remembered, greetings conveyed, gifts given, and galas celebrated on time. Each monthly page of this perpetual wall calendar delivers ample space to record the annual mileposts of family and friends.
