Personal Stories, Universal Resonance What makes the personal universal? No matter how different or niche, somehow, deeply personal stories always find a way to resonate with audiences large and wide. Join moderator Mariko Tamaki (Surely Books) and panelists Kristen Radtke (Seek You: A Journey Through American Loneliness), Hiromi Goto (Shadow Life), Lee Lai (Stone Fruit), and Julia Kaye (My Life in Transition) as they share the inner workings of portraying inner lives and what it takes to bare one’s soul through the art of specificity.
