Books Cast Their Spell on Me: Trafficking in the Alphabet
We are creatures of stories, ever rewriting the narrative of our lives. Our stories ask the big questions: Where do we come from before life? Where do we go after life? What do we hold sacred? Even if we never find the answers by the asking and by the telling, we know we’re not alone, and sometimes that’s more important than an answer.
Join Kevin Kling for a look at stories of stories, the role of stories in our lives, and memories as alibis or evidence. Why do we need stories? Are stories medicine? And, of course, there will be stories.
