The Moth Book Hits New York Times Best Sellers List

Panthera

Several months ago, The Moth - an acclaimed, New York non-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling - published a book featuring fifty spellbinding stories, including a soul-bearing story contributed by Panthera’s CEO and Moth regular, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz. Today we are pleased to share that this book has been selected for The New York Times Best Sellers List!

Along with Dr. Rabinowitz’s contribution, the book’s stories include writer Malcolm Gladwell’s wedding toast gone horribly awry; legendary rapper Darryl “DMC” McDaniels’ obsession with a Sarah McLachlan song; poker champion Annie Duke’s two-million-dollar hand; A. E. Hotchner’s death-defying stint in a bullring with his friend Ernest Hemingway; former Clinton Press Secretary Joe Lockhart’s tale of missing an Air Force One flight after a hard night of drinking in Moscow; and Dr. George Lombardi’s fight to save Mother Teresa’s life.

This book will be a beloved read for existing Moth enthusiasts, fans of the featured storytellers, and all who savor well-told, hilarious, and heartbreaking stories.
