Listeners begin their journey by learning about how the French built the Statue of Liberty and then gave it to the United States. Almost halfway through the story, a new narrative begins as the focus shifts to “her right foot” and the author asks listeners to think about why Lady Liberty appears to be in motion, where she is going, and the connection these details have with welcoming immigrants from around the world to America. Narrator Dion Graham connects with listeners by using an inquisitive tone that encourages reflection. Listeners will be intrigued by the little-known facts sprinkled throughout the story, but what makes this work stand apart is when this iconic landmark becomes a symbolic figure for all those Emma Lazarus wrote about in her renowned poem “The New Colossus.” M.D. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
