"The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them. If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed...

...Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. That is why we put these stories in each other's memories. This is how people care for themselves. ”

Barry Lopez, Crow and Weasel

Join us for CHQ 2019 Week Five, July 20 - 27:
The Life of the Spoken Word

As consumers, creators and critics, we are experiencing a renaissance of the spoken word. We join together the history and modernity of compelling oratory to explore broader themes of social and intergenerational connectedness and the ways that our speech, our stories, bring us together.
