"Around the age I am in this hilarious school photo, the audiobooks I remember most vividly are The Hobbit (abridged on VINYL!) and a collection of “Jack Tales.” These were folktales from Appalachia, and my siblings and I listened to them night after night of our summer vacations in Ohio’s national parks, all of us in the screened-in porch jockeying for position nearest the portable cassette player Mom always brought along for entertainment.
But I think for my official Throw Back Thursday, Audiobook Month recommendation, I’m going with HERE IF YOU NEED ME.
This audiobook was such a surprise to me - not at all my “type,” I thought, but I was utterly won over by Kate Braestrup’s thoughts on life, death, faith, love and family, and also by her gentle voice as she narrates her story. It made me both laugh and cry on the subway, and it’s stuck with me for years since listening”
