Georgia WR wrote children’s book to inspire kids to live their dreams
HOOVER, Ala. — Last year the guy who was the most impressive at SEC Media Days was Chris Conley. This year it was another UGA WR — Malcolm Mitchell.
The Dawgs wideout, who has been very active promoting children to read and has a Twitter account @ReadWithMalcolm, unveiled the book he just wrote called "The Magician’s Hat" Thursday using the big media platform to further spread the message.
Asked what he wants kids to take away from his book, Mitchell said, "I can be whatever I want to be if I dream it."
Mitchell said the book cost him around $500 to produce, but it would’ve cost more had a friend not helped out doing the illustrations. The book is available through his feed for $18.95. It is aimed at children from grades K-4.
Last year Conley came to Hoover and talked about, among other things, the movie he had made. So what’s in the water of that UGA wide receiver room?
Mitchell smiled. "Coach Richt doesn’t confine us to just be athletes."
Here’s a look at Mitchell showing his book off to media in Hoover.
