NCTE 2019 had many highlights for me, but some of my favorite word capturings came when I was listening to Tommy Orange. I kept trying to listen and collect. I feel lucky that I was able to pull these words as he spoke. They are so true, and the examples that prove this are abundant. We write because we are made of stories, and our words can travel anywhere, creating ripples of change in places we may never imagine.
