Luong Ung ADL Welcomed Guest Speaker: Loung Ung 

On Friday, February 21st, bestselling author Loung Ung, returned to ADL. Loung is an author, activist, and lecturer and a graduate of Albert D. Lawton Intermediate School.

Her former teacher, Mr. Gustafson, invited Loung to speak to the entire 6th grade about her books, experiences, and career. Loung's first book, First They Killed My Father, was turned into a movie directed by Angelina Jolie. 

Loung was a wonderful speaker, keeping the kids under her spell during her speech. The students asked lots of thoughtful questions, it was a great educational experience for all of us. Thanks for coming back to visit us, Loung!
