Minh Le

“I believe that a book isn’t finished until it’s being read. So it’s an honor (and so much fun) for me to share books with students and watch stories come alive through the eyes of young readers.” 


Minh Lê is the award-winning author of Drawn Together (winner of the 2019 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature) illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat, Let Me Finish! (an NPR Best Book of 2016) illustrated by Isabel Roxas, and The Perfect Seat illustrated by Gus Gordon (all published by Disney-Hyperion). He is also the author of Green Lantern: Legacy (illustrated by Andie Tong), his debut middle grade graphic novel for DC Comics and has several other unannounced projects in the works.

In addition to writing books, Minh is a federal early childhood policy expert and has worked in education at the national, state, and local level — both in and out of the classroom. He received his bachelor’s in Psychology from Dartmouth College and a master’s in Education Policy from Harvard University. He has been published in the New York Times, The Horn Book, Huffpost, and NPR. Minh was also named one of the 100 Coolest Dads in America by Fatherly in 2018 (landing somewhere between LeBron James and President Barack Obama).

Outside of spending time with his wonderful wife and kids, Minh’s favorite place to be is in the middle of a good book.
