THE BLUE SWEATER Bridging the Gap Between Rich and Poor in an Interconnected World

by | Read by Jacqueline Novogratz

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Humanitarian Jacqueline Novogratz chronicles her journey from idealistic young banking consultant for international development to founder/CEO of the Acumen Fund, which invests in social enterprises around the world to help alleviate poverty. She provides her own narration, giving the listener a glimpse of both the world of international development and her passion for helping to lift people out of poverty. She also provides an interesting in-depth discussion of her experiences in Rwanda, both before and after the genocide. One potential distraction in the narration is her unconventional pronunciation of some words, perhaps due to all the time she’s spent abroad. In the end, though, this doesn’t detract from the audiobook’s inspiring message. S.E.G. 2012 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
