We have a bit of a #longread (long listen?) for y’all this week. First, in today’s podcast, managing editor Troy Reeves speaks with DePaul University English Professor and published author Miles Harvey about his recently published oral history collection, How Long Will I Cry?: Voices of Youth Violence. Not only does this collection have a fascinating origin story, but Harvey offers a fantastic “outsider’s perspective” on working with oral histories. The full OUP introduction includes an excerpt from one of the contributors. If you like what you read, you can request a FREE copy of How Long Will I Cry? from Big Shoulders Books.

We were excited to contribute, however minutely, to this important project, so I hope y’all will take a minute to check it all out.
