UNG The Gold I See: The Legacy of UNG’s Dahlonega Campus — Art Sample

We are incredibly excited for the release of our first children’s book: UNG The Gold I See: The Legacy of UNG’s Dahlonega Campus written by Dr. Bonita Jacobs and illustrated by J’Nelle Short. There’s only five short weeks until its release on November 27, 2018.

Today, we’re sharing the first inside-look at the art and characters. Benjamin Brown, his daughter Jamie, and grandson Tommy each have a different goal during Visitor’s Day at UNG’s Dahlonega Campus. The grandfather wants to recall the memories of his years in the Corps of Cadets. The mother wants to remember her years in the nursing program. And the grandson wants to find UNG Dahlonega’s legendary treasure: the gold hidden somewhere on campus. He has Nigel the Nighthawk and a treasure map to guide him; his grandfather and mother have the memories. What do you have?
