Friends Annual Lunch and Presentation of “The Adventure of Story” by Dr Elizabeth Tatum

October 29 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

Join Friends of the Abbey at its Annual Lunch followed by a presentation by Dr Elizabeth Tatum (Ph.D.) on the Adventure of Story.

Dr Elizabeth Tatum will take you on an adventure through the world of story. Explore why story is so important in helping us navigate our lives and understand our past. Follow the twists and turns as we peer into the depths of story development and reconnoiter the pathways used to hardwire our brains for story. Feel the chill of the coffin king and the thrill of meeting some of the fascinating characters who bring history to life through story.

If you have ever wanted to know why a story hooks you in, what is so special about stories and how they can be used to help us understand our past then come and join us for The Adventure of Story.

Join the Abbey Museum Friends for this fascinating presentation.

All are welcome.
