FRANKFORT – Hickory Creek Middle School in Frankfort will host author Tim Green at 6 p.m. Feb. 3 at 22150 W. 116th Ave., Frankfort.
This presentation is funded through a grant from the District 157-C Education Foundation.
After studying writing at Syracuse University where he was an All American football player, Green was drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons where he was a top defensive player for eight years.
While he played in the NFL, Green also studied law and began his writing career. By the time he retired from football in 1994, Green had already published his first book and become a lawyer. Green also worked as a television broadcaster for a variety of shows.
After writing more than a dozen books for adults, Green wrote a series of novels for young readers set in a world of sports taken from his own experiences as an athlete and a coach.
Green has visited over 1,000 schools and spoken to nearly a half million students across the United States about the importance of education, character, and the joys and benefits of reading.
Green’s book “Unstoppable” was a Rebecca Caudill nominee.
