Throughout the week, more than 18,000 students were visited by 11 award-winning children’s book authors including several from Georgia, as well as NASA author, speaker and space historian Andrew Chaiken and New York Times bestselling author Brian Lies.

We’re proud to partner with to partner with Cobb EMC to make this happen.”
