9/1/11: Storyteller Kevin Kling

Salt Lake City, Utah – Utah's Timpanogos Storytelling Festival is this weekend, and Thursday, Doug is joined by featured performer Kevin Kling. Kling is a humorist, perhaps best known for his commentaries on NPR. His stories are autobiographical - funny, but deeply personal. Kling shares everything from holidays in Minnesota and performing his banned play in Czechoslovakia to living with a birth defect and surviving a near fatal motor cycle accident. He joins Doug to talk about the power in story to overcome tragedy.
