LISTENING IS AN ACT OF LOVE A Celebration of American Life From the StoryCorps Project

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dave Isay and StoryCorps Participants

Contemporary Culture • 1 hr. • Audio Program • © 2007

Award-winning story collector Dave Isay loves the act of listening. In this collection of stories gathered by the StoryCorps project, Americans tell the story of American life with plainspoken honesty and affection. A simple question—“tell me about your life”—kicks off a variety of heartfelt, evocative, and challenging stories. Isay’s narration introduces the speakers and gives just a bit of background to help listeners connect with the storytellers. Take special note of a bonus track of Jo Ann and Bob Chew as she deals with the beginnings of Alzheimer’s disease, Mary Lou Maher and the son she gave up for adoption, illegal immigrant Blanca Alvarez, interviewed by her daughter about slipping across the U.S. border, and survivors of Hurricane Katrina and 9/11.
