I received TWO collections of stories from StoryCorps, edited by Dave Isay (which are now in paperback) and I fell even more in love with their idea and their mission. Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps and All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps are the most beautiful oral story collections I have ever heard and each of them has a very powerful message to share.
All There Is is a collection of love stories told by people from around the country. Love found, love lost and love found at last are their central themes...I will cry right now. Mom is just in time for Mother's Day. It is a collection of stories that celebrate the strength and diversity of American mothers and the very special relationship between mother and child. I will cry right now, again.
