We are all storytellers. We tell stories about work, about travel, about the best and worst things that happen to us. It stands

Solomon, Turchi’s lecture looks at some of the different types of stories told by characters, how those stories effect the
tellers and their listeners, and how storytelling itself can be a dramatic event.
