HOME NOW How 6000 Refugees Transformed an American Town

by | Read by Jeanette Illidge

Contemporary Culture • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This is a listen about a small city in Maine and new residents who are trying to make their way into what is--to them--a very strange place. Narrating with empathy, Jeanette Illidge affects an accent when speaking for the Somali refugees who find themselves living in Lewiston, Maine. This story offers an inside look at the challenges of moving halfway around the world in hopes of a better life. Illidge keeps listeners engaged with this true story, and her use of subtle--and not so subtle--accents when delivering quotes from the refugees adds an element of realism.
