Hi Brian.
You might ask Dave Isay about his own maternal grandmother - and his mother's books - it's quite a wonderful theme in their family history.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Dave Isay in 2003 at the beginning of Story Corps - his explanation of the idea was expansive. Over the years, hearing these personal gems of truth, the intimate details of strength reminds me how a small idea can touch millions. Thank you Dave!
