Contemporary Culture • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Bestselling author and journalist Anna Quindlen knows the importance of the written word, and the recording of experiences. Her casual yet persuasive performance is a call to action for anyone who thinks their life stories aren't worth sharing. Quindlen reflects on literary letters, diaries, and the people who have impacted her writing, and emboldens listeners to value their day-to-day experiences--and commit them to paper. After all, Quindlen argues, couldn't the common experience provide a richer, truer version of a person's story, and of history in general, than the penned accounts of major events so often documented from the white male perspective? Despite distracting sound effects at the end of some sections, Quindlen's observations and encouraging tone may spark listeners to set memories to words.
