Since 2003, StoryCorps has recorded the life stories of ordinary Americans, some of which are collected for a new book and cd, Listening Is an Act of Love: A Celebration of American Life from the StoryCorps Project (Penguin, 2007). Dave Isay, public radio producer and the founder of StoryCorps and its parent company Sound Portraits, is joined by participants Mary Caplan and Ronald Ruiz to play excerpts from some of the stories and talk about the project.
Listening Is an Act of Love is available for purchase at Amazon.com.
