Welcome to another Tuesday with TED. Today we have storyteller and children’s book author Carmen Agra Deedy. She talks about the art of storytelling and spins a funny, wise, and luminous tale of parents and kids, starring her Cuban mother.
Born in Cuba, Carmen moved to the United States as a child, and her childhood and family provide a rich vein of material for her vividly (and rapidly) told stories. She’s a contributor to National Public Radio and has won numerous awards for her writing.
Her story, You’re Going to Miss Me, is a hilarious tale of mother-daughter angst and ultimately, of human connection. Settle in and enjoy the ride—Mama’s driving!
Did you enjoy Carmen’s story? Do you agree with her statement that great storytelling is the art of letting go?
Until next time,
