Thank you all for an energizing and very productive meeting on Wednesday. Below are links to some of the resources that you all contributed during the meeting.

 

 

Elizabeth Smart, the young woman from Salt Lake City, who was kidnapped and abused when she was 11 years old, talks about her horrific experience in an interview with NPR. Elizabeth’s memoir My Story has been recently published.

 

The New York Times article about Martin Luther King Jr. that Gary mentioned. In this op-ed, Bernard Lafayette, a Freedom Rider during the Civil Rights movement, reminisces Martin Luther King’s heroic display of non-violence that prevented mob violence in Montgomery. You could also listen to Lafayette talk about these events in this BBC interview.

 

A link to Charles Mee’s website. Charles is a playwright, who uses found text to write plays and believes that “there is no such thing as an original play”.

 

A link to Barbara Ehrenreich’s essay Welcome to Cancerland, in which she voices her honest, undiluted narrative about the experience of breast cancer. Andrea mentioned her students just read this.

 

TED talk by the cartoonist and comic theorist Scott McCloud.

PAGES, art journal: This publication that Sherry brought to the meeting caters towards art journalers and book artists providing them new and innovative ideas for bookmaking.

 

Additionally, Andrea shared this link to Robert Tercek’s TED talk about reclaiming the power of personal narrative , in which this multimedia designer talks about the role of interactive media as powerful storytelling tools. Т
