If you've ever wished to sit down over a cup of tea and a plate of chocolates for an intimate conversation with a favorite author, you'll treasure this dialogue. Isabel Allende reflects on her early years in Chile, her decision to take her family into exile, the culture she left behind, and her views on politics and feminism in the world today. Ms. Allende shares the events and emotional experiences that inspired the writing of her books, and explains how storytelling defines her life. "I see the world as stories, evolving stories, interconnected stories, and for me to explain something I always have to go to the story. If I have to tell you who I am, I will have to tell you my story. That's how I see the world." (hosted by Michael Toms)
