Morgan Jerkins reads an excerpt from her book "Caul Baby," backed by an original Storybound remix with French Cassettes, and sound design and arrangement by Jude Brewer. Born and raised in Southern New Jersey, and now residing in Harlem, New York, Morgan Jerkins is the New York Times Bestselling author of "This Will Be My Undoing: Living at the Intersection of Black, Female, and Feminist in (White) America" and "Wandering In Strange Lands: A Daughter of the Great Migration Reclaims Her Roots."

Her third book "Caul Baby" was one of 2021's most anticipated books by TIME, Buzzfeed, and Oprah Magazine. French Cassettes is a harmony-driven power-pop group from San Francisco. The quartet's new LP, Rolodex, is hook-filled and rooted in pop, layered with intricate vocal harmonies and counter-harmonies, inventive percussion, and every shade of clean and fuzzy guitars stacked up like an orchestra.

S3. Ep. 6: Noé Álvarez reads an excerpt from "Spirit Run"

Noé Álvarez reads an excerpt from "Spirit Run", with sound design and music composition from Daniel Frankhuizen of Locator. Noé Álvarez was born to Mexican immigrant parents and raised working-class in Yakima, Washington, which are both topics covered in detail in his book, which – btw – is a debut. And some debut it was, garnering a Starred Review in Publisher's Weekly and an Editor's Choice Selection from the New York Times. This is one of those rare stories that skirt the edge of travel, adventure, outdoors, family memoir, and spiritual.  Locator is the solo project of cellist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Frankhuizen. By putting the cello in the driver seat melodically, texturally, and emotionally, Locator cuts out a unique path between contemporary classical and electronic minimalism. This episode is brought to you by: WW Norton, the publisher of Lydia Millet's A Children's Bible, which was named a Top 10 Book of 2020 by the New York Times.

S3. Ep. 1: Junot Díaz reads "Aurora"

Junot Díaz reads his short story "Aurora", with sound design and music composition from Y La Bamba. Junot Díaz was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New Jersey. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Drown; The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award; and This Is How You Lose Her, a New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist. He is the recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, PEN/Malamud Award, Dayton Literary Peace Prize, Guggenheim Fellowship, and PEN/O. Henry Award. A graduate of Rutgers College, Díaz is currently the fiction editor at Boston Review and the Rudge and Nancy Allen Professor of Writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the cofounder of Voices of Our Nation Workshop. Y La Bamba has been many things, but at the heart of it is singer-songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza’s inquisitive sense of self. Their fifth record, Mujeres, carries on the Portland-based band’s affinity for spiritual contemplation, but goes a step further in telling a story with a full emotional spectrum. Coming off Ojos Del Sol, one of NPR’s Top 50 Albums of 2016, Mujeres exhibits the scope of Mendoza’s artistic voice like never before. “Soy como soy,” Mendoza says, and that declaration is the bold— even political— statement that positions Mujeres to be Y La Bamba’s most unbridled offering yet.
