The Next Big Story - My Journey Through the Land of Possibilities

Rose Arce

"Story is our medium. It's how we connect emotionally with our viewers. And it's how we make sense of our world....When we talk about a 'big story,' we're really talking about what resonates with people, what matters to them.... And I think when it comes to our national narrative, what we need to realize is that we're all contributing to the story, that we can affect where this country is going." From top CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O'Brien comes a highly personal look at her biggest reporting moments, from Hurricane Katrina, the tsunami in Southeast Asia, and the devastating Haiti earthquake to the historic elections and high-profile interviews with everyday Americans. Drawing on her own unique background and consciousness as well as her experiences as a journalist at the front lines of the most provocative issues in today's society-and particularly from her work as host of the acclaimed series Black in America and Latino in America-O'Brien offers her candid, clear-eyed take on where we are as a country and where we're going. What emerges is both an inspiring message of hope and a glimpse into the heart and soul of one of America's most straight-talking reporters.
