Thatcher Freund – “Why Your Story Matters”

thatcherThatcher Freund, a journalist and memoir writer, will talk about the importance of stories in our lives both to ourselves and to the culture we live in, and why it matters so much that we preserve them.  Thatcher is a graduate of Stanford University with a B.A. in History, and the Columbia School of Journalism, and has lived in New England off and on for the last twenty years. Our stories matter, and people a thousand years from now will use the stories of people living today to help them better understand themselves. Civilization owes its existence to our ability to tell stories and pass them down.
