ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Author Dana Middleton visited fifth grade students from Creek View Elementary School on Sept. 23. The California-based author was raised in the Atlanta area and both of her published books, “Open if You Dare” and “The Infinity Year of Avalon James,” are set locally.
Teacher Alison Snow’s fifth grade students will work with the author during the school year through a program called Kids Need Mentors. The students will video call with her monthly to discuss writing tips, the writing process and reading. Students will also have the opportunity for some coaching on an individual basis.
Middleton will be back at Creek View in the spring for another visit to continue her work with the students.
