Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dan John Miller

Biography & Memoir • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1972

Pat Conroy's celebrated memoir recounts the famed author's year teaching the impoverished children of tiny Yamacraw Island, off the South Carolina coast. The children were virtually illiterate before Conroy's arrival. The isolated youths became enthralled with Conroy's intellect and experience. Dan John Miller superbly animates Conroy's work, vocalizing the charming and endearing students' wonder and awe, and Conroy's sense of humor and adaptation to his students. Miller's energetic performance and accents seize the essence of this harsh environment, and rejoice in Conroy's educational triumphs and unconventional teaching methods. A.W.
