The Story of Us All: Telling on Ourselves, Telling About Ourselves
Singer, Songwriter, Author
Friday, September 6, 2013 — 7:00 p.m.
School of Nursing and Health Science Building Auditorium
On the campus of Tennessee Tech
Storytelling and songwriting are autobiography. In fact, every created thing bears the image, in some way, of its creator. Many of us shy away from sharing our own stories because we believe they aren’t interesting or relevant when in fact our stories may be one of the most significant things we have to offer to our communities.
From Rich Mullins to Frederick Buechner to J.R.R. Tolkien, Andrew will explore the ways in which honest storytelling has shaped his understanding of the Gospel. In this talk, we’ll get a chance to hear Andrew unpack the commitment that guides his craft as a musician and a writer: “To tell the truth, and to tell it as beautifully as possible.”
Andrew Peterson is a singer/songwriter whose solo career has taken him across America as well as to Europe, England, Wales and Scotland. He is also a member of the Square Peg Alliance, a collaborative group of Christian singer/songwriters who are successfully building a following outside the traditional bounds of the Christian music industry. He is proprietor of theRabbit Room, a community of songwriters, authors, and artists interested in storytelling, faith, and fellowship. Additionally, Andrew is the author of a series of children’s books, The Wingfeather Saga, the last of which (volume 4) should be available early next year. Andrew and his wife Jamie have three children and live just south of Nashville.
The Humanitas Forum is delighted to welcome Campus Outreach at Tennessee Tech as co-sponsor of Andrew Peterson’s talk!
