TEDxOverlake - Nancy Rawles - Learning to Breathe Deeply

Nancy Rawles is a writer and a teacher. For twenty-five years, she's taught the art of storytelling to writers of all ages. She is the author of MY JIM, the 2009 selection of the Seattle Public Library's popular program "Seattle Reads." MY JIM paints a realistic picture of the family of Huck Finn's famous traveling companion, a runaway slave named Jim. Written as oral history, it is narrated by Jim's wife Sadie, a character Mark Twain mentions only once in THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN. In her New York Times review, Helen Schulman called MY JIM "as heart-wrenching a personal history as any recorded in American literature."In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
