MARS HILL AUDIO Anthology 3

Place, Community, and Memory

What is the price of modern rootlessness? Is it possible to sustain community and local memory in an age when place seems to matter so little? In this Anthology, essays by Gina Bria, Wendell Berry, and Gilbert Meilaender, and the fiction of Bosnian novelist Ivo Andric explore the important ways in which we (and the communities we inhabit) are shaped and sustained by the particular places in which we live. 100 minutes
