Barbara Esrig on StoryCorps on the Power of Stories to Heal

Barbara Esrig tells the story of surviving a car accident that nearly took her life and finding meaning through the power of words -- and her story is now featured on the StoryCorps site. Barbara is writer-in-residence in the Shands Arts-in-Medicine program in Gainesville, FL. where she does oral histories for patients to remind them that they are more than just a diagnosis. She's presently collaborating on a book on these oral histories as well as writing about her own work. Listen to her story and check out her amazing work. Barbara has been a frequent attendee at the Power of Words conference, and she has been active in the field of TLA for many years.

Barbara! Do you remember the cannolis I made in Athens, Ohio? Did I bring them to Thanksgiving dinner? or was that another occasion? Haven't made cannolis since.
