The Storied Elderly

When James Clark retired as an English professor from North Carolina State University, he wasn't done teaching. He went from the classroom to the retirement home, where he taught the elderly how to share their experiences with family and friends through creative writing.

He was recently honored for his volunteer work. Host Frank Stasio talks to Clark about teaching our oldest generation how to write their stories.
