Scott Brown was one of America's greatest cartoonists. He was also a beloved small town soda shop philosopher. Brown's Soda Shop in Mansfield, Ohio was a local landmark featuring Scott Brown's poster sized cartoons in the window and "the largest, modest and bests chocolate soda on Route 30, including all detours."
Brown's grandson, Chris Kuntz, spent three years researching his story and walking in his shoes. The result was a book, Scott Brown: Cartoonist. In the process, Kuntz also realized that when we know our personal story, we accept power over our life. But how much more power we experience when we know the unique story of our family. Those who created us and influenced us.
Kuntz presentation, The Power of Family Story, tells universally relevant tales from his own personal journey. Listeners are inspired to capture their own unique family story, and are invited to appreciate and experience the power that this brings. His program is complete with both funny and serious stories, cartoons, artwork, and history.
Christopher Kuntz is a Seattle based author, artist, and surgeon. He is the son of a general surgeon and writer, and grandson of cartoonist Scott Brown. Originally an educator, Kuntz began his second career in medicine, becoming an eye surgeon and specializing in cataract surgery.
His book, Scott Brown: Cartoonist will be available for sale and signing following the program.
