Award-winning children's author Dan Gutman received the Milner Award during a presentation held at Creek View Elementary School on Nov. 13.
Dan Gutman is the author of the Baseball Card Adventures series, My Weird School series, the Million Dollar series and the Genius Files series.
The purpose of the Milner Award is to develop in children a lifelong love of reading. Every year since 1983, Atlanta-area school children vote for their favorite author and the winning author comes to Atlanta to be honored at programs attended by the children who voted.
During the program, Gutman discussed life as an author and how plots and characters are developed, giving children a glimpse of a writer's process. The program concluded with a book signing by Gutman.
Creek View Elementary was especially excited to host this program representing Fulton County schools.
