Dan Kilday, author of the new children’s book “Molly Warner: School Reporter,” will be visiting several Oak Ridge Schools on Tuesday, February 13. The author will be visiting Linden Elementary School, Woodland Elementary School, and Willow Brook Elementary School, as well as Jefferson Middle School, a press release said.
A graduate of Central High School in Knoxville, Kilday earned a communications degree from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama, before working as a television anchor and reporter for local stations in three states. Kilday was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and currently resides in Austin, Texas, with his wife and three children.
Here is more information about the book:
Molly Warner, a sixth-grade student at Robert K. Howard Middle School, has a wide reputation for being a gossip. If something is happening, she knows all about it and shares it with anybody who was within earshot of her. It even leads to a new school policy that the teachers privately refer to as ‘The Molly Warner Rule.”
Rather than punishing her, the school principal places her on the newspaper staff, where she puts her skills to good use.
With her journalism teacher’s help, she learns the importance of a free press and strives to be a great reporter. When strange things start happening at school, Molly resolves to find the real story behind what is going on and who is to blame. Little did she know what she would uncover and the journey it would take her on.
“Molly Warner: School Reporter” can be purchased online from multiple vendors including Amazon and Barnes & Noble. More information can be found at www.mollywarnerbook.com.

More information will be added as it becomes available.
