I haven't done The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, in quite a long time.
Here are the rules:
- Grab a book, any book.
- Turn to page 56.
- Select a sentence or two to post.
- No linky this week, so just leave a comment or link on the host's blog.
I chose to highlight a few lines from the book Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps, introduced and edited by Dave Isay. When I received this book from TLC, I had no idea what StoryCorps was all about.
In the book's introduction, I learned that StoryCorps began in 2003 in Grand Central Terminal in NYC. StoryCorps has conducted nearly 30,000 interviews with more than 50,000 people across the United States. It's a collection of diverse voices who interview each other and tell their individual stories. I realized that I have another StoryCorps book on my shelf, not yet read, Listening Is An Act Of Love. Without further ado, here is my "56" from Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps:
Jennifer: I wasn't your shadow anymore. That was the beginning of my independence.
Please stay tuned for my review of this book, which will include a giveaway.
