“The Healing Power of Story”
With the professional title of “storyteller,” Kevin Kling brings a variety of material to his audiences—humor, inspiration, and insight of the human experience. Kling will be speaking as part of the Penrod Lecture series.
From birth, Kling had limited use of his left arm, and later in life he was in a motorcycle crash which resulted in complete inability to use his right arm. Through overcoming obstacles that came with these challenges, he came to understand the importance of connecting through others and gaining appreciation for their narratives.
Krista Tippett of American Public Media wrote, “Kevin Kling is part funny guy, part poet and playwright, part wise man. A treasured figure on the national storytelling circuit, his voice inhabits an unusual space where a homegrown Minnesota wit meets Dante and Shakespeare.”
Kling will leave people with smiles, gratitude and a better understanding of the human condition.
