“Many stories matter,” said author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in a 2009 TED Talk. “Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize.” Inspired by the popular series “The Moth,” the Mahaney Arts Center and Middlebury College’s student storytelling organization the Middlebury Moth-UP handpick local raconteurs to share anecdotes on a given theme. This year, participants riff on the topic of resilience. Middlebury students Sabian Edouard and Hawa Abdullaahi Adam, alumna Tania Flores, professor Tara Affolter, and community members Jack Mayer and Pierre Vachon step up to the mic with real-life tales, all told by heart.
