We have begun a new collaboration to bring stories into the community, this time with the UNC Hospital School. Stories are a way to share our lives, to escape into other worlds, to identify with characters who are going through similar experiences, or to learn from new experiences so that we can better understand and cope with life as it comes to us. Stories heal! Stories empower! Stories connect us to each other! We hope Story Squad will bring joy, laughter, and hope to the children at UNC Hospital School, just as we try to do with all of the children we meet.
