Wood was the worst reader in his class, battling ADHD and dyslexia before anyone knew what they were. He was lucky to have a special teacher who offered him books.

Now Wood is the creator of 34 books with over 2.5 million copies printed, including the classic children’s titles “Old Turtle” and “A Quiet Place”. Her program motivates audiences to never give up, overcome challenges, and recognize the importance of reading.

The free program, aimed at children and families, is funded by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
