The True Story

I was recently given a book containing some of Sam Neill's work. Sam was a member of the faculty at the University of Western Ontario's Graduate School of Library and Information Science; He was also a gifted storyteller.

The True Story

The most important aspect of librarianship

is storytelling.

Factual information

might take you down the road

apiece.

Fiction

takes you everywhere

and anywhere.

The storied imagination

feeds hope and desire,

fires visions and determination,

washes earthy empiricism with meaning and

tells it like it is, was, and will be.



Taken from Of Root and Branch : Selections from the writings of Sam Neill.
