ATLANTA -- In honor of Grandparents Day, two local authors who were raised by their grandparents will host a celebration at Atlanta's Carter Center.
President Jimmy Carter signed a proclamation for a national celebration of grandparents in 1978. This year's Grandparents Day lands on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
The Carter Center event will begin at 7 p.m. on that day and will be hosted by Michael Morris and Robert Leleux.
Morris based his latest novel, Man in the Blue Moon, on a true story his grandfather told him. In the book, a man on the run for murder is shipped to his family in a crate.
