From Our Radio-Theater Podcast, Storybound
Storybound is a radio-theater program designed for the podcast age. Hosted by Jude Brewer and with original music composed for each episode, the podcast features the voices of today’s literary icons reading their essays, poems, and fiction.
In this week’s episode, Amanda Stern reads an excerpt from her memoir, Little Panic, with sound design and music composition from Haley Lynn.
Amanda Stern is the author of the novel The Long Haul and the nine-book Frankly Frannie middle grade series. Since 2003, she has helmed the Happy Ending Reading series and she’s been a NYFA Fiction Fellow and held residencies at the MacDowell Colony and Yaddo. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, New York Times Magazine, Salon, Post Road and St. Ann’s Review.
With a voice that silences every crowd and lyrics that cut you in two, Hayley Lynn has gained momentum as one of Portland’s top singer-songwriters. Hayley’s sound echoes the work of Ani Difranco with the bite and grit of Elle King and Fiona Apple. She’s written over 200 songs and released her first debut EP Hypnotize in 2016.
