Author J. Dillard donates 60 copies of first book to Benteen Elementary 3rd graders

Award-winning author and professional barber J. Dillard stopped by Benteen Elementary School in Atlanta’s East Lake section to donate 60 copies of his first book, J.D. and the Great Barber Battle to the school’s third graders. Barber Battle is the first of three books starring an all-Black cast of characters including a mother, sister, grandparents and friends that all play a critical part in J.D.’s every day life. The donation is a way to further foster summertime reading en route to fourth grade in the fall.
