If there is such a thing as the Telling the Story Blog trifecta, Andrew Carroll has completed it.
I first mentioned the author and his book, Here Is Where, on my 3 Great Stories segment.
Then, after reading the book last month, I wrote a commentary in the form of a review about the masterpiece he had produced.
Now, I am proud to introduce Carroll as my latest guest on the Telling the Story podcast.
Carroll is a two-time New York Times best-selling author whose most recent work, Here Is Where, is a look at the forgotten stories from America’s history. The author road-tripped across — and even beyond! — the continental United States to fulfill the mission.
Come back to tellingthestoryblog.com Wednesday at 8 AM to hear the full podcast with myself and Carroll. We talk about a variety of subjects, delving into the overarching themes of his book and examining the storytelling process one chooses when facing the mountainous challenge of writing a 450-page book.
Carroll also offers his advice for young writers. His first pearl of wisdom? If you want to write well, you need to read. A lot.
