Call Me Ishmael (And Talk About a Book You Love)

Email a Friend

Logan Smalley, creator of Call Me Ishmael, set up a voicemail box and asked callers to leave a message about a book that changed their life. In return he got a flood of messages, anonymous and deeply personal, about the powerful experience of reading. He talks about the inspiration for the project, and we take calls with stories about books that have influenced you.
