Elevating the world of children's music, Elizabeth Mitchell brings a folk musician's love of homespun storytelling to her unique brand of gentle, heartfelt music. Mitchell is joined by a roster of special guests, including Natalie Merchant ("Wonder," "Kind and Generous") and Grammy-winning children's music singer-songwriter Dan Zanes, for a concert blending holiday songs off her new album, The Sounding Joy, with longtime audience favorites, a songbook that includes renditions of classic songs by Woody Guthrie, Bob Marley, The Velvet Underground and Gillian Welch.

Ann Patchett and other writers pay tribute to Eudora Welty (1909-2001), sharing thoughts on her work and introducing actors to read some of her lesser-known gems. During her lifetime, most of which she spent in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi, Welty published such beloved stories as "Why I Live at the P.O." and "The Petrified Man" in collections including A Curtain of Green, The Wide Net and The Golden Apples. She won the Pulitzer Prize for her 1972 novel The Optimist’s Daughter. "I try," Eudora Welty writes, "to enter the mind, heart, and skin of a human being who is not myself. Whether this happens to be a man or a woman, old or young, with skin black or white, the primary challenge lies in making the jump itself. It is the act of a writer's imagination I set most high." Marian Seldes, Sloane Shelton and Kathryn Markey will perform “Lily Daw and the Three Ladies,” “The Key” and “A Piece of News.”
