The Poetry of Strangers: What I Learned Traveling America with a Typewriter Audiobook

The Poetry of Strangers: What I Learned Traveling America with a Typewriter

Author: Brian Sonia-Wallace Narrator: Graham Halstead Release Date: June 2020

It might surprise you who’s a fan of poetry — when it meets them where they are. Before he became an award-winning writer and poet, Brian Sonia-Wallace set up a typewriter on the street with a sign that said “Poetry Store” and discovered something surprising: all over America, people want poems. An amateur busker at first, Brian asked countless strangers, “What do you need a poem about?” To his surprise, passersby opened up to share their deepest yearnings, loves, and heartbreaks. Hundreds of them. Then thousands. Around the nation, Brian’s poetry crusade drew countless converts from all walks of life. In The Poetry of Strangers, Brian tells the story of his cross-country journey in a series of heartfelt and insightful essays. From Minnesota to Tennessee, California to North Dakota, Brian discovered that people aren’t so afraid of poetry when it’s telling their stories. In “dying” towns flourish vibrant artistic spirits and fascinating American characters who often pass under the radar, from the Mall of America’s mall walkers to retirees on Amtrak to self-proclaimed witches in Salem. In a time of unprecedented loneliness and isolation, Brian’s journey shows how art can be a vital bridge to community in surprising places. Conventional wisdom says Americans don’t want to talk to each other, but according to this poet-for-hire, everyone is just dying to be heard. Thought-provoking, moving, and eye-opening, The Poetry of Strangers is an unforgettable portrait of America told through the hidden longings of one person at a time, by one of our most important voices today. The fault lines and conflicts which divide us fall away when we remember to look, in every stranger, for poetry.

Bretonisches Vermächtnis - Kommissar Dupins achter Fall (Ungekürzte Lesung)

Author: Jean-Luc Bannalec Narrator: Gerd Wameling Release Date: June 2020

Kommissar Dupin ermittelt vor der eigenen Haustür Concarneau, die 'blaue Stadt' am Meer, kurz vor den Pfingsttagen. In der berühmten Altstadt Ville Close feiern die Bretonen mit Musik und Tanz den Auftakt des Sommers, und alles könnte so wunderbar heiter sein. Gäbe es nicht plötzlich einen Toten - genau vor Kommissar Dupins Lieblingsrestaurant, dem Amiral. Doch damit nicht genug: Ausgerechnet in diesen Tagen sind Dupins Inspektoren beurlaubt und Nolwenn unerreichbar. Gemeinsam mit zwei neuen Kolleginnen widmet sich der Kommissar der alles entscheidenden Frage: Wer hatte es auf Docteur Chaboseau abgesehen? Während Dupin noch fieberhaft nach Anhaltspunkten sucht, kommt es zu einem Anschlag, der die gesamte Stadt in Aufruhr versetzt.

French Like Moi: A Midwesterner in Paris

Author: Scott Dominic Carpenter Narrator: Scott Dominic Carpenter Release Date: June 2020

FRENCH OR FAUX? When Scott Carpenter moves from Minnesota to Paris, little does he suspect the dramas that await: scheming neighbors, police denunciations, surly demonstrators, cooking disasters, medical mishaps—not to mention all those lectures about cheese! It turns out that nothing in the City of Light can be taken for granted, where even trips to the grocery store lead to adventure. In French Like Moi, Carpenter guides us through the merry labyrinth of the everyday, one hilarious faux pas after another. Through it all, he keeps his eye on the central mystery of what makes the French French (and Midwesterners Midwestern).

Miles from Nowhere: A Round the World Bicycle Adventure Audiobook

Miles from Nowhere: A Round the World Bicycle Adventure

Author: Barbara Savage Narrator: Nan Mcnamara Release Date: May 2020

This is the story of Barbara and Larry Savage's sometimes dangerous, often zany, but ultimately rewarding 23,000-mile global bicycle odyssey, which took them through twenty-five countries in two years. Miles From Nowhere is an adventure not to be missed! Along the way, these near-neophyte cyclists encountered warmhearted strangers eager to share food and shelter, bicycle-hating drivers who shoved them off the road, various wild animals (including a roof ape and an attack camel), sacred cows, rock-throwing Egyptians, overprotective Thai policeman, motherly New Zealanders, meteorological disasters, bodily indignities, and great personal joys. The stress of traveling together constantly for two years tested and ultimately strengthened the young couple's relationship. As their trip ends you'll find yourself yearning for Barbara and Larry to mount back up and keep pedaling. It's a story that makes you feel like you've grown right along with the author.

Korea - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide To Customs & Culture Audiobook

Korea - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide To Customs & Culture

Author: James Hoare Narrator: Charles Armstrong Release Date: May 2020

Apart from the headline-making politics, not much is known in the West about the Korean people and their ancient culture. Yet those who visit Korea, whether North or South, find a land of great interest. The Koreans, when not constrained by politics or other considerations, are friendly and sociable, and the peninsula has areas of outstanding natural beauty. The South's cities, if not always beautiful, are vibrant and alive. The North, while very different, is complex and fascinating. The standoff between the two countries of the Korean Peninsula is a legacy of the Cold War and a potential flashpoint for future conflict. Despite a brief thaw in relations a few years ago, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in the north, a secretive single-party socialist state with a centralized industrial economy, conducted nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009. The Republic of Korea (ROK) in the south meanwhile, a free-market democracy, has become a rising economic power and, in 2010, became the first former aid recipient to join the OECD Development Assistance Committee. This new, updated edition of Culture Smart! Korea looks at the changing social and economic situation and provides real insights into thinking and behavior in both countries. It indicates the pitfalls to avoid and introduces listeners to some of the many delights of the Korean peninsula.

Together, though the magnifying glass of one small town, they discover another history of people, culture, climate and some of the most relevant recipes for living in the 21st century. Find out why Inside The Tortilla is: 'not your typical expat handbook' and why novelist Mark Radcliffe wrote: 'I'd recommend this to anyone visiting Spain regardless of whether they are going to discover the country or to turn red near Malaga; at worst it made me feel a more authentic tourist.

Baltic Adventure: My 2,000km run from Stralsund to Tallinn Audiobook

Baltic Adventure: My 2,000km run from Stralsund to Tallinn

Author: Guido Lange Narrator: Jane Connell Release Date: May 2020

The Baltic adventure is my very own personal run of a lifetime. It has changed me forever. In 107 days, I journeyed in running shoes along the Baltic Sea from Stralsund to Tallinn. Travelling alone, I was able to devote myself completely to nature, the people and their cultures. Strangers became friends, expectation turned into reality, boldness into self-confidence. I experienced bustling holiday resorts and lonely areas. Enjoyable breaks in the towns and cities alternated with abstinent running days. I felt the mysticism of the Baltic States, the magic of untouched nature and the diversity of people in seven countries. I discovered what I was looking for: new experiences, peace and last but not least, a lot of new things about myself.  Guido Lange had requested a 4-month sabattical to fulfil his longing to run – on and on. What could be more obvious than to run along the water into the bright, fresh Baltic summer, through Poland, the Kaliningrad Oblast, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia to a marathon in Finland! 7 countries in 107 days, countless experiences and encounters in one of the most interesting regions of Europe. A travel book for everyone who has been to the Baltic States or wants to go there. An adventure book for all who'd like to pack their own bags and get out and go. A running book for all who've experienced long runs and those who'd like to do so.

Er hat mich für immer verändert. In 107 Tagen reiste ich in Laufschuhen entlang der Ostseeküste von Stralsund nach Tallinn. Ohne Begleitung konnte ich mich ganz der Natur, den Menschen und ihren Kulturen widmen. Aus Fremden wurden Freunde, aus Erwartung wurde Wirklichkeit, aus Wagemut wurde Selbstvertrauen. Trubelige Urlaubsorte und einsame Gegenden erlebte ich, genussvolle Pausentage in den Städten wechselten sich mit enthaltsamen Lauf- tagen ab. Ich spürte die Mystik des Baltikums, den Zauber unberührter Natur und die Vielfalt der Menschen in sieben Ländern. Ich fand, was ich suchte, Erlebnisse, Ruhe und nicht zuletzt viel Neues über mich selbst.'

My Four Seasons in France: A Year Of The Good Life Audiobook

My Four Seasons in France: A Year Of The Good Life

Author: Janine Marsh Narrator: Susan Duerden Release Date: April 2020

A little over ten years ago, Janine Marsh and her husband gave up their careers in London to chase the good life in the countryside of northern France. Having overcome the obstacles of starting to renovate her dream home-an ancient, dilapidated barn-and fitting in with the peculiarities of the locals, Janine is now the go-to expat in the area for those seeking to get to grips with a very different way of life. In this book, Janine regales us with the delights and dramas of a year attempting to live the rural idyll. Each month brings to light a new aspect of life in the French countryside: snow in January, resulting in a broken arm, which in turn leads to an etiquette lesson at the local hospital; wild winds in February; cuckoos in March; and giant hailstones in July that destroy cars and houses and bring the villagers closer together. Told with warmth and humor, My Good Year in France showcases a uniquely French way of life: where two eternally ambitious expats drag a neglected farmhouse to life, and deal with the accompanying disasters, learn to grow vegetables, discover how to cook, and stumble across the hidden gems of this very special part of the world.
