Description
We don t know anything about the past and we don t seem to want to know it. And all the time the people who can tell us about it, make it meaningful, the real repositories of living information, are being lost. Studs Terkel
For "Coming of Age," the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Peabody Award-winning radio host interviewed a diverse assortment of men and women ranging in age from 70 to 99. This audio includes the stories of 14 people who lived through the defining moments of the 20th century. Together they represent an extraordinary panorama of American life and work throughout the century and the ways in which the times have changed.
For "Coming of Age "is a compelling picture of what we have gained through progress and what we have lost.
