Dave Isay, the founder of StoryCorps and the editor of the project's bestselling collection, Listening Is an Act of Love, joins Larry to present his new book, MOM, a selection of StoryCorps's most revelatory stories on the subject of mothers and motherhood. StoryCorps is the oral history project undertaken in 2003 that collects the life stories of Americans in all fifty states and has preserved these interviews for future generations at the Library of Congress. Millions of radio listeners hear these stories each Friday morning on NPR.
