Today’s Question by the reader : Ken

Author: Paulo Coelho

How significant will the arts play in world relations and shedding light in a dark world?

Dear Ken,

I believe that the arts – and in particular storytelling – are one of the rare bridges left between cultures.
There are so many divides between people nowadays but I believe that a story has this immense power to bring people together. This is because it basically speaks to something that never alters in people : their hearts and imagination.
