Title: Construction, illustration, and a plethora of pigs: Reflections on a lecture by Arthur Geisert
Author(s): Stevenson, Deborah
Subject(s): Storytelling
Abstract: It's a measure of the power of storytelling, I suppose, or at least the power of Arthur Geisert's storytelling, that after two days of intense concentration on the topic of story we were still seduced into rapt attention by closed curtains, dimmed lights, and a well-turned tale. In this case, however, the tale was autobiographical and accompanied by slides, describing the Geiserts' Herculean labors in the construction of two charming and almost entirely inaccessible homes as well as Mr. Geisert's work in picture books.
