Storytelling in the Time of Twitter

 

Does the way we live today compromise our communications and storytelling traditions? What is social media doing to our culture?

International journalist Tracy Dahlby presents “Storytelling in the Time of Twitter—The Sequel” at the Women’s Club of Greater Lakeway, Monday, March 24 at the Lakeway Resort and Spa.

Dahlby, now a faculty member at the University of Texas in Austin, says he is fascinated by the digital revolution. “Among other things, I’ll discuss an intriguing recent experiment that used Twitter as a storytelling device. I’ll try to show just how quickly things move in digital storytelling.”

Before joining UT in 2006, Dahlby spent three decades working primarily as a journalist in international affairs. He lived in Asia for 13 years and served as Tokyo bureau chief for the Washington Post and Newsweek. He also was managing editor of Newsweek International in New York. As a regular contributor to National Geographic, Dahlby specialized in writing about Asia.

His memoir, Into the Field: A Foreign Correspondent’s Notebook, is due out this fall from University of Texas Press. He also has worked in documentary films for television and won a national Sports Emmy Award in 1999.

The March 24 event begins at 9:30 a.m. with coffee and conversation. After a brief meeting at 10:00 a.m., members and their guests will enjoy Dahlby’s presentation. A buffet luncheon follows at 11:30 a.m. by paid reservation, with informal fashion modeling provided by Point of Origin.

To reserve, call Kay Beasley at 512-906-0144 by Monday, March 17. For membership information, please see lakewaywomensclub.com.
