Among the topics they plan to discuss is the role of the storyteller in enabling school children to become storytellers of their own lives. Dr. Zipes will also share his enthusiam for doing research into the history of forgotten writers and illustrators--a practice that can reward any storyteller. And who knows where else the conversation may lead?
