by Christina Baldwin
Story is one of humanity’s most powerful tools. We love or hate, make peace or war, based on the power of story alone.
Story excites, delights, teaches, and terrifies us. We learn vicariously, absorbing stories of other people’s experiences, deciding what applies to us.
Story is how we introduce ourselves and establish belonging or difference.
Story allows us to triumph over tragedy by carrying resilient narratives.
In chapters filled with stories, Storycatcher invites people to explore the power of story, to take charge of their story, and to use story to make their world a better place. That, plus writing prompts, questions, and unforgettable characters.
