This captured my attention first because one of the narrators is Dion Graham, whose voice I love, and because it was inspired by the Spoon River Anthology. It‘s a multiplicity of rich voices, of various ages, genders, and classes, sharing their stories of life together in Harlem with its joys and struggles.

Cinfhen Dion Graham is my FAVORITE male narrator!!! LOVE his rich voice ♥️ 2mo
Singout Right??? I did a search on my library site to find his readings. André Alexis is also wonderful, but he only reads his own books. 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Sounds awesome! 2mo
