Colum McCann – stories building community

Literary magazine Bodega offers an engaging interview with wonderful writer Colum McCann on his involvement with the new literary non-profit venture Narrative4, global storytelling.

“The core philosophy is: You step into my shoes, I step into yours.  You take responsibility for my life, I take precious care of yours.  Stories are the engine of who we are.  They are a mighty weapon.  Like kids, we must treat them with respect.”

“There is not a person who might not, potentially, benefit from the ability to exchange her story. That’s a bold statement but I think it’s true.”

– Colum McCann, in Bodega magazine
