About: Robert Atkinson

I am a professor of human development and the director of the Life Story Center in the OLLI National Resource Center at the University of Southern Maine, and the author of eight books including, The Gift of Stories; The Life Story Interview; The Beat of My Drum (with Baba Olatunji); Latino Voices in New England; and, Remembering 1969, my memoir. My vision of this blog is for it to become a common ground for sharing the stories of our lives that are most important, most meaningful, to us, kind of like a front porch for the peoples of the world to share their stories and learn from each other.
