Telling a storyteller’s story

March 8, 2017 — 
Knowing time was short, author Gregory Bryan asked the printers to ship a copy of his book early so that the subject of the biography, failing in health, could review its pages. Titled, “Paul Goble, Storyteller,” the account documents the life of the award-winning children’s author and illustrator, the product of four years of work. Although he sadly passed away two weeks before the book’s release, Prof. Bryan knew how Goble felt about the results of their labour.
