Taking Things Seriously - A Leonard Lopate Show Photo Contest

Most of us have a random object that inspires us – a found seashell, an empty box, a souvenir trinket, a sculpture bought at a yard sale. On Friday, December 21, The Leonard Lopate Show is hosting a new listener photo project, Taking Things Seriously – inspired by the new book of the same title, by Joshua Glenn and Carol Hayes.
