A local author’s latest book tells the tale of his mother’s search for her biological mother. KelLee Parr’s mother was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and adopted by a couple from rural Kansas. Later on in her life, Parr helped his mother find her origins. “My Little Valentine” is not a traditional Valentine tale, but instead weaves the story of a mother and daughter catching up on years of lost love.
KelLee Parr recently visited with KMAN about his new novel. Parr says his book is just as much about the hidden history of Kansas City as it is his mother’s story. The full interview can be heard below. To learn more about “My Little Valentine”, visit Parr’s website.
