Bird is a verb and tonight we are looking at birds, not through binoculars, but on the page. Birds have influenced storytelling from the earliest folktales and fables; they are tricksters, messengers, and symbols of freedom and wildness. On this evening, we honor our feathered friends with an array of short fiction about birds personified and birds as metaphor. Author Amy Tan joins us with drawings of—and commentary on—the birds that inspire her to create.
