LIFE BEYOND MEASURE Letters to My Great-Granddaughter

by | Read by Sidney Poitier

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2008

Close your eyes for a moment and try to imagine esteemed actor, writer, director, and humanitarian Sidney Poitier shopping at The Gap and Old Navy! This is but one of many funny, heartwarming, and deeply inspirational adventures to be found in Poitier’s latest work, dedicated to his great- granddaughter in the hope of letting her know exactly who her great-grandfather was, what he believed, and what made him tick. His letters to her are compelling, as is his narration. Sidney Poitier has a voice as melodious as a Caribbean breeze. There is no mistaking the dynamics and energy he asserts as he moves effortlessly from letter to letter. Like his acting, his narration is unfailingly professional, warm, and highly interesting, and makes for a triumphant audio presentation from beginning to end.
