Transmedia Storytelling (3:39) We all know that books are just one way to tell a story. But, off the top of the 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. 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 a blog. Cyrano (23:08) We finish the show with Sarai Clemente and Laura Johnson, BYU students studying Elementary Education and Spanish Dual Immersion, who review a picture book entitled, Cyrano by Taï-Marc Le Thanh and illustrated by Rébecca Dautremer. This book, written in Spanish, is based on the French classic Cyrano de Bejerac by Edmund Rostand. Sarai and Laura were a part of our host Rachel Wadham's Children's Literature Class at BYU. They and their classmates had an opportunity to record some book reviews as part of a class assignment. These reviews are available on the Worlds Awaiting page on byuradio.org.
