Storytelling as part of our lives

Aug 27, 2012

Watch the show and join the conversation on the Intersection website.

This year's One Read selection, “The Tiger’s Wife” by Tea Obreht, has been described as a story about storytelling. As the One Read program gets under way, we take a closer look at the idea of storytelling itself: Why are stories important on an individual and community level? How have our ideas about story changed? And what can we expect to see in the future?

Scheduled panelists:

Jonathan Gottschall, author of "The Storytelling Animal" (joining the program by phone)

Berkley Hudson, associate professor of journalism, University of Missouri

Michael Porter, associate professor and chair of the Department of Communication at the University of Missouri
