Author and personal historian Meghan Vigeant shares insights and plays audio recordings about life and storytelling gathered from the elders she has worked with over the years. Touching, funny, and well told -- this talk is sure to entertain as well as inform anyone who wants to save someone's story. 

Bio: Meghan Vigeant is the daughter of a fisherman, so she grew up hearing all kinds of tale tales. The experience of sitting at the feet of a storyteller must have stuck, because she made her profession. For the last ten years Meghan Vigeant has been interviewing people and helping them tell their stories. Four years ago she decided to make a business out of it called Stories To Tell. She helps people, families, and organizations to turn their real life stories and history into books and audio memoirs.
