Presented by Dr. Pamela Cook Miller
Storytelling is at the root of who we are, where we came from, and how we live. In the 1980s a National Storytelling Revival was begun in Jonesborough, TN with echoes which have resonated around the world. The National Storytelling Festival is in its 48th year, and Jonesborough is considered THE WORLD CAPITAL OF STORYTELLING.
Dr. Miller, is a performing member of the Jonesborough Storytellers’ Guild and founder of the Storytelling Resource Center, the only museum/library of storytelling in the world, which contains thousands of books, recordings, art and artifacts. Dr. Miller will present some of the many important uses of storytelling for adults in education, psychology, healing, literature, and entertainment.
