Support The Writer's Almanac
I received an email this morning that started out like this:
Dear Friend of The Writer’s Almanac,
We’re writing because we need your help to support The Writer’s Almanac digital content, such as our daily e-mail newsletter, podcasts and extensive audio archive.
You can listen to The Almanac in the time it takes you to drink one cup of coffee or make one sandwich. Its purpose has been to make five minutes beautiful and memorable.
That's all it took. I clicked through. I gave some money. Because The Writer's Almanac does make five minutes of my morning memorable and beautiful. Not that I get to listen everyday. In fact, I listen maybe 50% of the time, and 50% of that time, my kitchen is too loud for me to really hear anything.
BUT! I still love it, and when a little gem of information or poetry breaks through the cacophony, my day is enriched. If you are so inclined, join me. Click here and give.
Poetry, history, anecdotes, and Garrison Keillor's lovely, soothing, resonant voice: that's a pretty great way to start the day.
