TED Talks

The Library is proud to announce the return of the TED Talks program. TED Talks are brief thought-provoking and relevant talks by experts that are designed to educate and inspire. This is an adult drop-in program.

Our topic for the day is:

The future of storytelling by Shonda Rhimes and Cyndi Stivers.

“We all feel a compelling need to watch stories, to tell stories … to discuss the things that tell each one of us that we are not alone in the world,” says TV titan Shonda Rhimes. A dominant force in television since “Grey’s Anatomy” hit the airwaves, Rhimes discusses the future of media networks, how she’s using her narrative-building skills as a force for good, an intriguing concept known as “Amish summers” and much more, in conversation with Cyndi Stivers, director of the TED Residency.
