Listening to Bobette Buster speak is like being privy to storytelling magic. Without skipping a beat, she moves effortlessly between pulling together history, philosophy, politics and her own well-informed perspective. But Bobette is quick to add that not all is gloom and doom — and story has a role to play there too. Truly, since the dawn of time, storytelling has the power to go viral. And Bobette would be the one to know. She is a storytelling guru, and she has both the chops and the cred to back up her title. Afterwards, Bobette moved away from the South — and out to Hollywood — to deepen her craft in the business of storytelling and script development, and achieved much success doing so.
Today, Bobette is a writer, producer and lecturer at the major studios and in top film programs, all over the globe, on how to create great stories well told. People like Harriet Tubman and other passionate speakers helped turn the tide on slavery — and we see this kind of movement holds true in history for all ideas. Bobette adds that while there is a downside to the power of storytelling, human beings are designed to seek out truth.
However, we are all very self-righteous and it can be hard when our viewpoint is attacked. So we must call on our better virtues, to be kinder and stronger, and seek open-mindedness. According to Bobette, although storytelling has powerful and universal appeal — many brands are suffering from poor execution. Yes, we are all hardwired to love stories.
But we are not all good storytellers. I have not read all the books in my list.
But I will. I have my retirement years ahead to read them all, and more. Read here how I chose my Kentucky authors and here how I chose their books. The rolling tally of my library is here. These are some suggestions on where to find old editions. I have two more lists of Kentucky Authors ; those I am waiting to add to my list on this page. Am I missing a Kentucky author or a book?
