York Releases First Book in Children’s Book Series with “Meet Penny Nickels”



Fentress County native Adam D. York recently released his first children’s book, “Meet Penny Nickels” with WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson & Zondervan.

“Meet Penny Nickels,” the first in “The Adventures of Penny Nickels,” introduces Penny, a copper-haired girl who lives with her parents, Bill and Sharon Nickels, and her pet Chihuahua, Dinero, in the town of Stewardville. Readers will join Penny in learning the true meaning and importance of living life as a good steward.

As a former minister to teens in Fentress County, a curriculum editor for young adults at LifeWay Christian Resources and a writer for various religious publications, York developed a passion for helping individuals learn about the importance of stewardship—managing well the things God has entrusted to us.

York, a 1998 alumnus of Alvin C. York Institute, currently serves as the Director of Alumni Communication and Young Alumni at Belmont University. He graduated from Belmont in 2002 with a degree in theological studies and completed a Master of Christian Studies from Union University in 2010.

As a first-time author, York hopes the series will help children and parents discover ways to use their talents, skills and passions to make a difference in the world through giving, serving and being good managers of our God-given resources.

As part of the book launch celebration, York will be doing a book signing at the Fentress County Library on Saturday, July 11, 2015 from 10 a.m. to noon. Books will be available for $12, and all are invited to attend.
