Delbridge knows sorrow like she knows the rhythm of her own heart. . . . Fans of Carson McCullers won't want to miss this one—witty, tragic, and relentlessly wise.”—Booklist, starred review

Family Bible

Melissa Delbridge, author of this intense, funny and tragic memoir of growing up in the deep South, joins Monica and Caroline on Writers' Voices this week. "Family Bible" was published by the University of Iowa Press as part of their Sightline Books: the Iowa Series in Literary Nonfiction.

Delbridge has published essays and short stories in the Antioch Review, Southern Humanities Review, Third Coast, and other journals. She is an archivist in the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library at Duke University.

Join us Friday at 1 pm or Monday at 8 am for this exploration of the modern memoir form.

For an in depth (kind of) behind the scenes (mostly) awesome look at what goes on in the studio from 4:00-5:00 on Wednesdays, during a "typical" Midweek Songstreak, check out our video!

the first half of the show is dedicated to chants that ring "get up, stand up." they are all there. count 'em.

mid show, Dead Prez fires it up before we chant out with some roots dub. i let Bob end it with a crucial reminder to wake up and live.

now is not the time to slack.

now is the time to rise up. wise up. get up.

stand up. for your rights. the rights of our "democracy" and for what you value most. sing songs of freedom. let your voice be heard. get informed.

get clear on the issues. VOTE! it's time for change. are you ready?!
