The Scenic Route: Stories from the Heartland
With the publication of The Scenic Route: Stories from the Heartland, the Indiana Historical Society Press celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Storytelling Arts of Indiana, which promotes the art and use of storytelling in daily life through its annual festival, concerts, workshops, programs, and other events. Storytelling is about gathering with friends, family, and even those we have just met to share with one another stories of our childhood, our culture, and our heritage. In this age of over-scheduled lives, Internet and television addictions, and outside pressures, stories remind us of our roots and traditions. Storytelling Arts of Indiana has spent twenty years creating places for individuals to come together and experience storytelling in the hope of encouraging that sharing and listening relationship in our everyday lives. The Scenic Route offers the reader a dozen stories to enjoy and to help us remember.
