The sad part of learning to read as a child is that you no longer have any justification for asking someone to read you a story. Audio Under the Stars is a godsend for literate adults who secretly long to close our eyes and let someone else's experiences and words wash over us. Each summer, a team of experienced radio producers associated with the Center for Documentary Studies collects tales around a theme from local residents, clads them with sound cues and bumper music, and then plays them en plein air for anyone who chooses to come and sprawl out on a blanket in the CDS courtyard to listen. This month's theme is Skin and Bones: Life, Death, and Everything in Between, which should provide a broad canvas for weighty personal stories. Forget, if only for a little while, that you ever learned to read, and all the additional responsibilities that followed. —Brian Howe
