American Public Media's John Birge hosts this two hour contemporary celebration of the spirit of Gratitude. This year with memoires and monologues on faith from Julia Sweeney; Anne Lamott with excerpts from her latest book "Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers;" A tribute to Bach, including Simone Dinnerstein; Eric Whitacre’s gorgeous setting of e.e. cumming’s "i thank You God for most this amazing day"; and Dawn Upshaw sings Maria Schneider’s breathtaking new setting of "Winter Morning Walks" by Poet Laureate Ted Kooser. And continuing a Giving Thanks tradition: a spellbinding story from actor Charles Laughton, giving thanks for Art that connects us all to the creative spirit.
