Gioia Timpanelli joins us from New York CIty. She's the author of the novels What Makes a Child Lucky (2013) and Sometimes the Soul: Two Novellas of Sicily (1998), winner of the 1999 American Book Award. She is one of the founders of the worldwide revival of storytelling. Often called the “Dean of American Storytelling,” she is today considered one of the world’s foremost storytellers—widely respected as both a master and scholar of the ageless art. She won two Emmy Awards for her series of programs on storytelling, Stories from My House, on educational television, where she created, wrote, produced, and appeared in eight series of literature programs shown on PBS stations all over the United States. She has also received the prestigious Women’s National Book Association Award for bringing the oral tradition to the American public and recently the Maharishi Award for “promoting world harmony wherever she goes by enlivening within the listener that field of pure consciousness that is the source of all stories.”
