ما أعرفه على وجه اليقين

Author: كتاب صوتي Narrator: هند وسام Release Date: June 2019

'ما الأشياءُ التي تعرفينَها على وجهِ اليقينِ؟' كانَ هذا هو السؤالَ الذي طرحَهُ الناقدُ السينمائيُّ 'Gene Siskel' على 'Oprah' في أحدِ اللقاءاتِ التي أُجريَتْ معَها، وأصبحَ السؤالُ ملهمًا لها لتكتبَ عمودًا في مجلةِ 'O, the Oprah'، ليُصبحَ بعدَ ذلكَ أساسَ كتابِها 'ما أعرفُهُ على وجهِ اليقينِ'. تُلقي هذه الومضاتُ الضوءَ على أوقاتٍ عصبيةٍ ومهمةٍ في فترةِ طفولةِ 'Oprah' وفي فترة نضوجِهَا على حدِّ السواءِ، وتبدأُ من حَمْلِ والدتها بِها مرورًا بالمخاوفِ الصحيةِ التي أرَّقتْها في منتصفِ الليلِ وتنتهي بكيفيةِ تميزِها لتقهرَ العنصريةَ. لأسبابٍ واضحةٍ، تترُكُ المصاعبُ التي يمرُّ بها الفردُ أثرًا طويلَ المدى عليهِ. ثمَّ يأتي السؤالُ: كيفَ تقفُ على قدميكَ بعدَ تجربةٍ مروعةٍ؟ كيفَ تتعلمُ حبَّ نفسِكَ؟ إن 'Oprah' لمْ تتغلبْ على المصاعبِ التي وَاجهتْها في بدايةِ حياتِها فحَسْبُ؛ بل حولَتْها إلى نقاطِ قوةٍ! وهذا ما ستقدمُهُ لكَ هذهِ الومضاتُ: ستكشِفُ لكَ عنِ الطريقةِ التي تستغلُّ بها تجارِبَكَ لتُحقِقَ التميُّزَ.

Zora and Me Audiobook

Zora and Me

Author: T. R. Simon, Victoria Bond Narrator: Channie Waites Release Date: December 2010

When a young man's body is found by the railroad tracks, the murder and its mysterious circumstances threaten the peace and security of a small Florida town. Zora believes she knows who killed Ivory, and she isn't afraid to tell anyone who'll listen. Whether Zora is telling the truth or stretching it, she's a riveting storyteller. Her latest tale is especially mesmerizing because it is so chillingly believable: a murderous shape-shifting gator-man - half man, half gator - prowls the marshes nearby, aching to satisfy his hunger for souls and beautiful voices. And Ivory's voice? When Ivory sang, his voice was as warm as honey and twice as sweet. Zora enlists her best friends, Carrie and Teddy, to help prove her theory. In their search for the truth, they stumble unwittingly into an ugly web of envy and lies, deceit and betrayal. Just as unexpectedly, the three friends become the key that unlocks the mystery and the unlikely saviors of Eatonville itself. Best friend Carrie narrates this coming-of-age story set in the hometown of American author Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960). Drawing on Hurston's stories, novels, and life, debut novelists Victoria Bond and T. "ŠR. "ŠSimon create an utterly convincing echo of a literary giant in this, the only project ever to be endorsed by the Zora Neale Hurston Trust that was not written by Hurston herself.
