GUEST HOST: DAVID STRATHAIRN

Longing And Secrets

February is a good time of year for an episode devoted to longing.

Description

Guest host David Strathairn presents two stories about longing. In Peter Carey’s “American Dreams,” a small Australian community is transformed into a tourist destination by a bizarre bequest. Strathairn is the reader. And writer and actor Lisa Fugard performs her own beautiful “Night Calls,” about a lonely widower, his young daughter, and an endangered bird.
