Starbucks Selection #3: Oral History

The AP reports that Starbucks has chosen “Listening Is An Act of Love: A Celebration of American Lives from the StoryCorps Project”, a collection of 50 stories in an oral history project as its third book selection. The book, edited by Peabody award winner Dave Isay and published by Penguin Press, will go on sale at Starbucks’ company-operated U.S. stores beginning Nov. 8, the company said.

First-person accounts of daily life from StoryCorps contributors are broadcast every Friday on National Public Radio‘s Morning Edition program. The collection is archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. “There are so many genuine stories, spoken with such passion and character, that it was difficult to narrow the selection,” Isay said in a statement released by Starbucks.
