I wanted to finaly get around to reading the book. This is disappointing. Weppage says speach but does not indicate it is only excerpts from the book. I may enjoy this after I I get a copy of the book, but this was really misleading. Its about as bad as when I bought the Spanish copy of the Art of War.
I listened to the commentary wondering when they were going to read the book and they never did. they just talked about it.
Not sure why this received negative reviews from those who were looking and thinking they purchased the audiobook.....the program type clearly states it's a Speech, as most symphonyspace productions are. And the summary describes it as follows: The evening includes readings, discussion and audience Q&A. Performance playlist: Readings and conversation with Kurt Andersen, Libba Bray, Stephen Colbert, Oskar Eustis, Mary McDonagh Murphy, Jayne Anne Phillips, and Isaiah Sheffer, a discussion with the audience. We used this with a class studying Harper Lee and To Kill a Mockingbird and found it very informative.
Yes! It is such an interesting cast of people discussing and celebrating 50th anniv of To Kill A Mockingbird.
How it influenced the panel the first time they read it and a more recent re-read.
Steven Colbert was really very intelligent and emotional. He was not silly at all. It was a pleasant surprise.The other's are not so famous to me, but they ALL were wonderful.
Not a good film.
The live audience Q&A was poor audio quality and was a waste of time.
