A very special evening celebrating the audiobook release of Prof. Miriam Therese Winter’s “The Singer and the Song: An Autobiography of the Spirit.”
The audiobook was narrated by acclaimed singer-songwriter Janis Ian, who won a Grammy for her own audiobook “Society’s Child.” Janis Ian also sings a selection of Prof. Winter’s songs on the recording.
First published in 1999, “The Singer and the Song” tells the remarkable story of Miriam Therese Winter, professor of Liturgy, Worship, Spirituality and Feminist Studies at Hartford Seminary.
Audible.com describes the book this way: “An award-winning musician and four-time Catholic Book Award-winner shares her experiences of becoming a Sister, working with starving children in Ethiopia and with refugees in Cambodia, of exploring the mysteries of India and the wonders of God in her own backyard, of having breast cancer and having hope. She also illumines new aspects of community, Eucharist, the word and spirit, water and the stars, spiritual blessedness, and much more.”
