Why Story Matters

“I aimed at the public’s heart, and by accident I hit it in the stomach.”

–Upton Sinclair, author of The Jungle, which exposed horrid living conditions for immigrants at the turn of the 20th century, as well as the unsanitary meat proccessing practices of Chicago ‘s stockyards. Sinclair tackled  problems still relevant today: food safety, labor battles, and immigration issues.
