Local author holds book release, diabetes fundraiser in one

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Theodore Moody Jr., a local Savannah author, launched his new book on Saturday and helped support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at the same time.

Moody's book launch, called "For the People and Lovers Lane", was part of a festive affair that also raised money for diabetes prevention.

A portion of each book sale will be donated to the cause. 

"Well, I have a niece who is Type One diabetic and insulin dependant, who was diagnosed a week before her second birthday. She's now age 16," said Moody.

"Now, to be able to put on an event that contributes to that cause of helping ones with that disease to be more happy and to live a more healthy life. I'm able to give back, and I'm happy to do that."

Moody is currently working on writing a play from one of the stories in his most recent book.
