For Us All Audiobook

For Us All

Author: Jeanne Sakata Narrator: Brooke Ishibashi, Ed Asner, Tess Lina Release Date: July 2021

A team of lawyers uses a little-known legal writ to fight and overturn the conviction of Fred Korematsu, unjustly sentenced for resisting the WWII mass incarceration of all Japanese Americans on the West Coast. The play draws much inspiration from Enduring Conviction: Fred Korematsu and his Quest for Justice by Lorraine K. Bannai (University of Washington Press 2015) and Justice Delayed by Peter Irons (Wesleyan University Press 1989). Includes a conversation with playwright Jeanne Sakata and four of the attorneys from the Korematsu v. United States case: Lori Bannai, Peter Irons, Dale Minami and Don Tamaki. For Us All is sponsored by the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program, a state-funded grant project of the California State Library. Recorded at The Invisible Studios, West Hollywood, in January 2021. Directed by Anna Lyse Erikson Producing Director: Susan Albert Loewenberg Edward Asner as John J.

Die Pest zu London Audiobook

Die Pest zu London

Author: Daniel Dafoe Narrator: Norbert Wendel Release Date: July 2021

Daniel Dafoe zählte zu den produktivsten und erfolgreichsten Autoren des 18. Jahrhunderts. Mit der Erzählung über den schiffbrüchigen „Robinson Crusoe“ bereicherte Dafoe die Literaturgeschichte. Von vielen wird aber sein Pest-Tagebuch, dass die Ereignisse in und um London, während der großen, verheerenden Pestwelle von 1665/66 schildert, für Defoes beste Arbeit gehalten. Um ungefähr ein Fünftel wurde die Bevölkerung der britischen Hauptstadt während dieser Zeit dezimiert. Die Detailfülle dieses Buch verführte selbst wohlunterrichtete Wissenschaftler dazu, in ihm eine historische Quelle für die damaligen Zustände zu sehen. Dafoe besaß im allerhöchsten Maße die Gabe, die man »Wirklichkeitsphantasie« nennen könnte, d. h. die Fähigkeit, sich in eine erdichtete und bloß vorgestellte Umwelt ganz und gar hineinzuversetzen und so völlig in ihr aufzugehen, als ob er tatsächlich darin zu leben und sich ihr anzupassen hätte.

The Taming of the Shrew Audiobook

The Taming of the Shrew

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Rafe Beckley Release Date: July 2021

“For I am born to tame you, Kate,And bring you from a wild Kate to a KateComfortable as other household Kates.” Baptista Minola has two daughters: Katherina and Bianca. Bianca is the “ideal wife” – beautiful, kind, submissive, and eager to wed. She has many suitors asking for her hand in marriage. The only thing standing in her way is her father’s promise not to let her marry before Katherina – and Katherina wants to anything but become a bride. Katherina is assertive and domineering, and unwilling to change her personality to attract a husband. When a man named Petruchio comes to town, Katherina finally feels she has found someone she can live with – he is quick-witted like her, and doesn’t seem to take offense to her brash communication. However, as soon as they are married, Petruchio begins “taming” her by gaslighting her and undermining her at every turn and denying her necessities like food, sleep, and clothing. This plot runs in sharp contrast to Bianca’s, who is able to woo an array of suitors after her sister is finally wed. Many men are running around and trying their best to deceive and bribe their way into Bianca’s heart, when she only has eyes for one called Lucentio. Between the comedy of a gaggle of men running around wildly to attempt to wed Bianca and the over-the-top portrayal of Katherina’s “taming,” The Taming of the Shrew is a humorous play that offers a fascinating look at the 16th century’s views on women, marriage, and domesticity.

Capoeira, The Novel: A Tale of Martial Arts Mastery, Mysticism and Love Audiobook

Capoeira, The Novel: A Tale of Martial Arts Mastery, Mysticism and Love

Author: Khafra K Om-Ra-Seti Narrator: Lucas Smith Release Date: July 2021

In his first novel, Khafra Om-Ra-Seti flows with the spirit of ancient African wisdom and martial arts mastership. This book brings together many of his beliefs and visions regarding the search for true meaning in life. The saga of the Dogon family, and the ancient beauty and spirit of Capoeira, move the reader into the realms of mysticism, power and deceit, love and hate, freedom and redemption, and the burning passion to reach the highest level of self-mastery in one’s lifetime. Ptah, a versatile and highly confident martial artist, has been the welterweight champion of his division for the past five years. His prowess in the ring is near legendary and he is popularly known as Ptah the Wizard. As a member of the Dogon clan, Ptah’s family has helped to establish the multi-million dollar earnings for fighters that truly proved themselves in the arena. But lying just below the competitive struggles in the arena is a universal struggle of good vs. evil, of revenge and deception, of mysticism and history, and of the ultimate test to achieve mastership in one’s life. Ptah’s confrontation with the ancient beauty and brilliance of Capoeira is his ultimate test to discover the true master in himself.

Twelfth Night Audiobook

Twelfth Night

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Rafe Beckley Release Date: June 2021

“If music be the food of love, play on,Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,The appetite may sicken, and so die.' After a shipwreck separates Viola from her twin brother in a strange town, she decides the best course of action is to disguise herself as a man, so that she can become a servant to a Duke named Orsino. This small deception quickly spirals out of control, as she mistakenly ends up in the middle of a love triangle with her Orsino and the object of his affection, Olivia. Confusion and hilarity ensue as Viola evades Olivia’s growing affections, while also trying to win over Orsino while still being disguised as Cesario. The situation grows even more complicated when Viola’s twin shows up and gets mixed into the chaos, and as a man named Malvolio attempts to enter himself into the complicated romance by vying for Olivia’s affections. Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s most amusing works, from the witty dialogue to the amusing scenes that play on themes of gender, class, and honesty. The complex love triangle has served as the inspiration for many comedic books and films over the centuries, and remains amusing to a modern audience.

The Gospel according to Clarence Thomas: A Libretto Audiobook

The Gospel according to Clarence Thomas: A Libretto

Author: Ashis Gupta Narrator: Nina Richmond And Chris Cameron Release Date: June 2021

This is an imaginary drama in verse in which US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas pleads with President George Bush Jr to be allowed to chronicle the glorious presidency of Mr Bush after his second inauguration. Of course, he is allowed to do so. Thus emerges a gentle satire which is also a social commentary of our time, replete with a large cast which includes Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, the Ghost of Saddam Hussain, and others, not to mention a sombre 'Chorus of the Homeless' providing a rational commentary throughout. An echo of Greek tragedies of yore. Clarence Thomas, the pious altar boy, seemed the right person for this 'heavenly' task of penning a Gospel. The U.S. Supreme Court is a comfortable place, but not necessarily a redemptive place that Thomas craves. As a footnote, the new presidency of Joseph Biden seems a proper moment to re-visit the initiation of Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991. Mr Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time and denied any corroborating witnesses to Prof. Anita Hill who had accused Thomas of Sexual misconduct, thereby assuring Thomas's nomination. One might say that this act of Senator Biden's set the precedent for the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, after Kavanaugh had also been accused of sexual misconduct.
