VUTHY "WOODY" KUON: Author, Artist & Motivator

As an illustrator, author, and motivator, I have visited nearly 100 schools per year since 1996. I love making kids laugh using art, storytelling & humor adapted to kids of all ages like pre-K, elementary, middle and high schoolers... adult groups too! I have over 100 books published and have been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS & FOX. I also love sharing my personal story about escaping a war-torn Cambodia, evacuating to a refugee camp in Thailand, to living now the "American Dream."

"I've had Woody Kuon visit my libraries several times over the last few years, and his visits are always the highlight of the year. He has entertained kids from kindergarten to junior high in our school district, and has captivated them all with his lively performances.  Woody has become a friend whom I will continue to invite to our schools!"
