The Milner AwardVOTE

The Milner Award encourages children

to read by empowering them to select their favorite authors and then bring them to Atlanta for the Milner Award Program each year. School children and their teachers and media specialists have the opportunity to come to the free program to meet the author in person and hear them speak. The winning author is chosen by votes gathered both in the elementary schools and in the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System branches. more >

Congratulations to our 2014 Milner Award Winner – Rachel Renée Russell

Rachel Renée Russell is the author of the #1 New York Times Best Selling book series, Dork Diaries. She’s an attorney who prefers writing tween books to legal briefs. Mainly because books are a lot more fun and pajamas and bunny slippers aren’t allowed in court. Rachel first introduced the world to Nikki Maxwell in 2009, and since that time she has written 9 books in the series which have sold more than 15 million copies worldwide. The series has been translated into over 32 different languages, and Dork Diaries 8: Tales From a Not-So-Happily Ever After is out September 30, 2014.
