I love the way Ellen Palestrant writes. It is as though she paints a picture of each interviewee and then she illuminate each one with very delicate and interesting questions. This seems to open up each individual's story.
Thank you Ellen for sharing these very special and interesting people with us.

Ellen Palestrant is an amazing interviewer! Her conversations with such a diverse ,accomplished, yet down to earth group of creative individuals is a fascinating read. Each conversation showcases a unique voice. I found myself engrossed by the self reflection and life-long journey's explored by everyone who was interviewed. I could actually hear each individual voice and was amazed by the variety of creative paths showcased in this book. This is a welcoming opportunity for readers to find "new friends" who will inspire you and encourage you to create.

Ellen Palestrant's search for people to interview about creativity has given readers an engaging series of interviews with professionals in many fields. As one of the interviewees, I am certain that Palestrant's questions gave artists, composers, writers, musicians, film-makers, sculptor, songwriter, anthropologist, and Holocaust survivor much to think about. The thoughtful exchanges presented in Conversations About Creativity will give readers much to think about, too.
