Taking Things Seriously

Most of us have an object that inspires us – a found seashell, a box, a souvenir, a sculpture bought at a yard sale...Our new Taking Things Seriously photo project is inspired by the recent book Taking Things Seriously: 75 Objects with Unexpected Significance, co-edited by Joshua Glenn. Joshua Glenn joins us to talk about some of the fabulous listener submissions we've gotten.

Taking Things Seriously is available for purchase at amazon.com

Weigh in: Even if you don't have a photo to submit, you can still write and tell us about an object that has special meaning to you.
