Alexander the Great [AudiobookAlexander the Great [Audiobook

"Alexander the Great" is the incredible story of the world's greatest conqueror, a man who single handedly changed the course of history…and who was worshipped as a god. There have been many attempts in the 2,300 years since Alexander's death to tell the epic story of this enigmatic soldier. His deeds read like the stuff of legends. Of all the chroniclers of Alexander, and there have been many famous ones, including Plutarch and Ptolemy, none have given us a clearer and truer account than the one by Arrian.

From Satan's Crown to the Holy Grail: Emeralds in Myth, Magic, and History

Morgan discusses the origin of the emerald, its peculiar structure, and its strange allure. The story weaves across several continents and thousands of years. It is a tale of conquistadors, treachery, shipwrecks, and alchemy. Along the way, we meet scientists and kings and bear witness as the great emeralds are born, mined, smuggled, cut, and sold. The book also discusses the modern art of making synthetic emeralds. From the fastnesses of Afghanistan to the steamy jungles of Colombia and Zimbabwe, from the sands of Egypt to the bitter Urals, this is the story of a stone whose strange journey reflects the yearnings, greed, passions, and longing for beauty of the human race.

Constructing a Story: Advanced Visual Storytelling

Storytelling is one of the oldest art forms that humans have. Stories have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, education, and cultural preservation. In this class you will be exposed to the essential idea of a narrative story structure with beginnings middles and endings. There are many tools to execute a successful story both verbally and visually and these workshops will teach you how. There are hardly revolutionary new ways to learn age old art forms so I will not promise that, what I will promise is to give a new perspective on how to understand common fundamental elements and use that foundation as a spring board to grasp advance concepts of story telling.
