"Novelist Amy Tan digs deep into the creative process,
journeying through her childhood and family history and
into the worlds of physics and chance, looking for hints
of where her own creativity comes from. It's a wild ride
with a surprise ending."
"Author Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we
expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical
idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all
of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and
surprisingly moving talk."
"For years we thought that in order to be creative
you had to 'be born with it.' Now, new thinking
on the subject reveals that everyone can learn to
be more imaginative and creative -- all you need
is high energy and strong motivation. Find out
how to tap into this learned skill from today's
expert panelists. Joining host Robert Kuhn are
scientist and sci-fi novelist Gregory Benford;
creativity and happiness authority Mihaly
Csikszentmihaly; corporate creativity expert John
Kao; artist Todd Siler; and poet Rhoda Janzen."
