Writer George Dawes Green on The Moth, storytelling, and “what makes us human”

Savannah can claim George Dawes Green as our own, right? The Brunswick-area native and longtime NYC resident has some deep roots here.

George is a novelist (The Juror, Ravens, and others) and founder of The Moth, which has revived the art of storytelling as part of our public conversation.

If we could listen to Homer tell a story from The Iliad or listen to him tell a personal story about his mother-in-law, which would we choose?
