We all love stories.
For centuries, we've turned to the storytellers among us, counting on them to recount history, share experiences and entertain.
In telling stories, writers remind of us our brief moment in this time and place, and tell us something about the shared human condition, in all its imperfections.
Today at noon, Minnesota Public Radio will air Writing Minnesota, a special program on how the state's writers approach their craft.
MPR News reporter Annie Baxter, who writes fiction, opens a window interviews several writers about their lives and creative works. The writers she interviews include Charles Baxter, Steve Healey, Robet Hedlin, Philip Bryant, Kao Kalia Yang, Nicole Helget, Katrina Vandenberg and Matt Rasmussen.
The show also will air at 6 p.m. Sunday.
Don't miss it.
