MSC Journalism Student Publishes Coloring Book

MORRISVILLE, N.Y.—Danielle George, ’05, a recent graduate of the Journalism program at Morrisville State College who was well-known on campus for her newspaper cartoons, became a published author earlier this year with the printing of a coloring book she wrote and illustrated, “Biscayne Underwater Park Coloring Book.”

The book, which is for sale at the Biscayne Park in Florida, includes original artwork and a message for children that stresses the importance of maintaining the coral reef as a valuable natural resource. George includes the book on her Web site, found at .

George, of Gloversville, NY, was aided in her first publishing venture by Assistant Professor of Journalism Brian L. McDowell, who owns Log Cabin Books, a small, independent publishing company that handled the layout and printing of the book.
