Week Six ARC Giveaway—Storytelling

“A story never belongs to just one person,” she explained to me. “It belongs to every person who has ever told it, and to every person who has ever heard it. And that makes storytelling quite an important thing.”

In WAITING FOR UNICORNS, this is how Talia's mother explains the value of telling a story to her daughter. Essentially, it's the idea that stories hold weight, because we are recounting (to ourselves and to others) bits and pieces of human experience. We are reminding each other what it means to be alive!
 
Question #6)

Is there a particular story that holds great weight in your life? Or perhaps a particular storyteller whose tales you find especially moving or profound?

Leave your response in the comments for a chance to win one of three ARCs of WAITING FOR UNICORNS. Winners will be announced Wednesday Dec 3rd.
