Contemporary storytelling provides a welcome refuge for those seeking the antidote to the increasingly impersonal experiences of the technology age. Bare data and facts don't always have the ability to inspire or teach, but storytelling, if effective, will always touch its audience. Spaulding has compiled and provided written analysis for a series of talks covering subjects all relating to the importance of storytelling here and now in the 'Age of Information'. She campaigns for the 'Virtual Reality of the Mind', and discusses the Story as Social Glue, driving home the point that the word is mightier than the word processor.

About the Author:

Amy Spaulding is Associate Professor at Long Island University's Palmer School of Library and Information Science, and a master storyteller.

From School Library Journal:

This book is a compilation of talks given by Spaulding, an associate professor at Long Island University's Palmer School of Library and Information Science, and includes doctoral colloquiums as well as presentations to parent groups. While her theme is a constant - that information is valuable, but wisdom invaluable, and wisdom springs from story - each talk examines and illuminates this idea from a different perspective so there is little repetition or redundancy. Spaulding's topics include the importance of story in and of itself, how storytelling differs from reading, the ways stories hold us together as "social glue," and how they stimulate the imagination and eventually lead not just to the discovery of information but also to making meaning from it. The argument is well constructed, logically organizing history and current research in a dynamic writing style that frequently includes those all-important stories. In an age when technology is pervasive and can seem overwhelming, Spaulding's passionate and persuasive case for the importance of story is important reading. - Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
