Go To: Vikki's 2013 Show: "Reading Bugs: Dig Up Some Fun"

Ventriloquist and children's author, Vikki Gasko-Green, is a perennial favorite among youth librarians and library audiences. Her shows feature funny interactions with adorable animal characters, exciting audience participation, and comedy.

Vikki's skills as a ventriloquist have won her international acclaim. Adults will be mesmerized by the fact that her lips don't even twitch. Kids will be captivated as a giant polar bear, beautiful macaw, and cute green dinosaur come to "life" before their eyes to tell stories and create playful mischief with the audience.

Vikki has been performing in libraries and schools for over 15 years. This experience is evident in the quality of her presentations and her ability to entertain all ages in the audience.

In addition to Vikki's popular family show, she also has several different programs that fit themes, including her new program "Reading Bugs: Dig Up Some Fun" for the 2013 Summer Reading Program. See the list below for descriptions of all her shows.

In January 2013, Vikki's first children's book, Dibs Doi The Bully Boy, was published. She has a special program for libraries allows kids to see what it is like to write a book. Ask us for details.
