Transmedia Storytelling (4:03) We all know that books are just one way to tell a story. But, off the top of our head, how many other ways can you think of? Librarian and author, Amanda Hovious, talks to Rachel today about Transmedia Storytelling, which is telling a story across multiple media like film, web series, computer games, theme park rides, and more. All these mediums help expand the story. And, it’s also a way to participate in the story – with others. Amanda Hovious is a librarian with a background in public and academic libraries and is also a writer, consultant, and library educator. She is author of the book Transmedia Storytelling: The Librarian’s Guide and also a blog. Pokemon Go (23:28) Next, Cole Wissinger, a member of our Worlds Awaiting team, interviews families, teenagers, college students, and others at the Provo Library about their thoughts on the new phenomenon, Pokemon Go.
