Following the previous evening’s performance, Bobby discusses the genre of historical storytelling, from a general overview of researching and using resources for finding good stories, drawing on historical narratives to find engaging and inspiring characters, and transforming story and character into a tell-able historical tale. This State of Stories program was produced in partnership with The University of Missouri Extension Community Arts Program to commemorate and celebrate the Missouri Bicentennial.
