the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts
Just in time for Mother’s Day, award-winning radio documentarian and oral storyteller Dave Isay visits Boston.
Isay is the editor of the new book MOM: A Celebration of Mothers, a collection of oral histories of mothers and motherhood in America. He will talk about the women in the book and the importance of listening to the stories of ordinary people. He will also play recordings of mothers telling their own life stories and will be joined live by several special guests -some of Boston’s best-known and dynamic Jewish mothers.
Founder of StoryCorps, Dave Isay also created the Yiddish Radio Project for NPR, among other radio documentaries, and has received five Peabody Awards, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a MacArthur “genius” grant. Since 2003, more than 50,000 people have shared life stories with family and friends through StoryCorps.
