AADL Productions Podcast: Richard Glaubman

This episode features 2011's Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads author, Richard Glaubman. Richard spoke with us about his collaboration with George Dawson on Life is So Good, a chronicle of Dawson's inspired personal journey through the tumultuous 20th century, culminating in his learning to read at the age of 98. Richard talks about his experience developing the book's narrative structure and George's voice, as well as his personal friendship with George and the irresistible effect of his optimism and quiet humanity on everyone he encountered. You can also watch or download a video of Glaubman's presentation when he visited in January.

It's great to see that the AADL owns several hundred copies of this inspirational title with the vast majority currently checked out (though many ARE still available for those interested). Be sure to check out the insightful book reviews that patrons have written at the bottom of this title's record for a sample of what makes it so popular. It's a fantastic boon for the success of the A2/Ypsi Reads program as well as a testimony to the compelling nature of this book. Thanks for posting the video and podcast, Amy!
