Snapshots: Storyteller Bob Dotson Enthralls Webster Community

| April 26, 2013

For 40 years, Dotson has traveled the U.S. seeking solutions from everyday people whose comments others might ignore or dismiss. His work shows how this country survives and thrives because of these ordinary people who succeed.

Master storyteller and eight-time Emmy winner Bob Dotson, a Webster Groves native, returned home to speak to a packed room at Webster University Wednesday, April 24. He shared some feel-good stories about everyday people who succeed — not just on talent and hard work — but also with curiosity and imagination. He answered audience questions and signed copies of his new book, American Story, a lifetime search for ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

Before his evening address, Dotson took the time to visit with Webster communications students and gave each of them his new book for free, recognizing the financial strain many students are already under.

Dotson’s long-running series, “American Story with Bob Dotson” is a regular feature on TODAY and other NBC news programs and has won more than 100 national and international awards for writing.
