The University of Mississippi alum, Alex Beene, has recently written another children’s book: The Journey of the Paper Heart, now available in hardback, paperback and digital format.

This new book is set in Paris where the young readers follow a paper heart’s journey through the City of Love. Separated from its owner, Rosalina, this heart learns the value of exploring new horizons with loved ones.

“Anyone who has traveled to Paris knows what a majestic city it is,” Beene said, “so we wanted to capture that feeling. At the same time, we wanted to share a message of the magic of traveling with your loved ones. The paper hearts in my life who contributed to this book – Angelia, Emily, Rob, Haley and especially Josh – beautifully do that.”

The book features the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triumph and the Louvre. Beene also referenced classic French-based literature like The Phantom of the Opera and The Hunchback of Notre Dame in this book.

Beene, who holds a bachelor’s and a master’s from the University of Mississippi journalism programs, has published his first book: Lessons From a Southern Mother. He appeared on ABC, CBS, ESPN Radio as well a wide array of print publications for Lessons From a Southern Mother.

As he drew inspiration from his late mother in the first book, he also drew inspiration for the second book from his travels. Beene is a “constant traveler” who visited over 20 countries. Naturally, The Journey of the Paper Heart is available in stores and online in 170-plus countries. For those who like to listen to a storyteller, there is an audiobook version with a song, “Lost Hearts” available on iTunes, Spotify and all other major digital music stores.

The Journey of the Paper Heart is officially registered with the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. as well as the Oxford University’s renowned library in the United Kingdom.
