Storytellers

Comedian Brian Babylon will lead a discussion on the art of storytelling featuring writers, actors, and other notable creators.

“Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here.”

—Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Storytellers brings professionals from a variety of fields together for a panel discussion on the art of storytelling. Comedian Brian Babylon, host of Old Black Magic and the Millennial podcast and frequent panelist on NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, will lead the discussion.

Featured panelists will include Communication faculty member Suzanne Deveney—a contributing writer to Foodable and Loving the Bike, whose work focuses on analytical thinking and real-world skills in written communication; Journalism alum Robert Chiarito ’97, who currently freelances for VICE News, The New York Times, and other publications; Brandon Markell Holmes, a Grammy-nominated musician and actor whose work centers around social observation and the relationship between history and art; and several other notable creators.

The event requires registration via Handshake.
