Join us for cupcakes and lots of laughs as we listen to Herman Parish tell us about his aunt Peggy Parish and the crazy Amelia Bedelia adventures. Herman will sign books and you can get your picture taken with Amelia Bedelia herself! We can't think of any better way to spend the afternoon.
Peggy Parish began publishing Amelia Bedelia stories in 1963. Peggy Parish knew what children like to read. Always involved with education in some way, Peggy Parish did television pieces on pre-school education and children's books, wrote children's-book reviews columns, and led numerous in-service training workshops for teachers. After living many years in New York City, she died in November, 1988 in her native South Carolina. Peggy Parish's nephew, Herman Parish, has been continuing the Amelia Bedelia stories since 1995.
Tickets are free with the purchase of either of the new chapter books, Amelia Bedelia MEANS BUSINESS or Amelia Bedelia UNLEASHED. We suggest books be reserved in advance. Other Amelia Bedelia books will be available for sale the day of the event.
