The Ritual of Communal Story Telling
In Jewish tradition, we read the central Judaic text, Torah, over and over and over again. As we have crossed over into the New Year, we begin the story once again. I talk with Rebecca Entel, novelist and Professor of English and Creative Writing at Cornell College, about what we can discover in the art and ritual of reading and writing.
The Wisdom of Storytelling
