Parkersburg, WV, September 2009---Trans Allegheny Books located at 725 Green Street in Parkersburg, West Virginia will kick off their monthly “Kids Club” event with former resident, Kim Parrish, and her newly released children’s book called The Snapdragon Princess on Saturday, September 26th. The event will start at 1:00 PM with a reading of the book followed by an opportunity to have the book signed by the local author. The event is open to the public.

“I’m excited to launch the book at my favorite bookstore in my hometown,” said Parrish. “I’m looking forward to meeting children in the area and introducing them to a story that was inspired by my grandmother while growing up in the Mid Ohio Valley.”

National television host Kim Parrish and best-selling children’s book author Deb Landry came together on this project to explore how role models can be found in our ordinary, everyday lives. The Snapdragon Princess (Bryson Taylor Publishing, ISBN 978-0-9773738-6-4) is available nationwide.

The Snapdragon Princess, for ages 6-11, revives the legacy of a real princess in a delightful intergenerational story of family treasures, enchantment and cherished times gone by. McKenzie is an astonishing young girl who dreams of becoming a princess. With the help of her grandmother, she embarks on a journey and discovers that being a real princess is much more than crowns and dress-up.

Each month, Trans Allegheny will host a “Kids Club” featuring a reading from a local author as well as an autograph signing event. Among the 500,000 titles of used books and 1,000 new West Virginia titles, vintage wooden cases located throughout the building hold rare and collectible items.

The Snapdragon Princess will be available at numerous local bookstores including Trans Allegheny in Parkersburg as well as other online retailers. More information can be found at
