From stories told around campfires to Scripture and Aesop’s Fables, we’ve all heard the question, “What is the moral of the story?” Paul Costello will help us ask the question, “What are the ethical implications of our story?” Stories have power in the world and power in our lives. If stories affect our decisions, it is essential that we better understand the ethics of the stories we tell.

About the Speaker: Paul Costello, author and founder of Storywise, is the Director of Project Maryland’s oldest AmeriCorps program.
