Thal Dixon

This award winning author and poet just might be the Dr. Seuss of this generation. He has won the Utah Best of State Award for his children’s books five years running. His ability to weave an interesting tale through perfect rhyme and rhythm makes his stories extremely entertaining for the kids. He is great in front of the group as well. Watching him perform in front of an entire room of students is a real treat.
He is a proud father of five children and resides in Sandy, Utah with his wife Claudia. He loves football, basketball, hiking with his dog Moki, and watching movies. He is available for speaking engagements and loves to share his words in front of a live audience.

By sharing his stories and their messages with young minds, he entertains, lifts and inspires.  He works hard to get kids excited about reading and learning.  His hope is to also create a few future authors along the way.
