Description

"A friendly reminder of how America can be at its best." - Entertainment Weekly If you had to name a statue, any statue, odds are good you'd mention the Statue of Liberty. Have you seen her? She's in New York. She's holding a torch. And she's in mid-stride, moving forward. But why? In this fascinating and fun take on nonfiction, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of America's most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Liberty's right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential of an entire country's creation.

Professional reviews

"Listeners begin their journey by learning about how the French built the Statue of Liberty and then gave it to the United States. Almost halfway through the story, a new narrative begins as the focus shifts to "her right foot" and the author asks listeners to think about why Lady Liberty appears to be in motion, where she is going, and the connection these details have with welcoming immigrants from around the world to America. Narrator Dion Graham connects with listeners by using an inquisitive tone that encourages reflection. Listeners will be intrigued by the little-known facts sprinkled throughout the story, but what makes this work stand apart is when this iconic landmark becomes a symbolic figure for all those Emma Lazarus wrote about in her renowned poem "The New Colossus."
