Another Lousy Day With Nora

From the More Interpretative Reading Dept: Jawbone's Own Nora had the pleasure of being a part of David Kodeski's podcast project Another Lousy Day, a series of diaries from the early 60's read aloud by as many as 730 different women. The project has been featured on NPR's All Things Considered:
"A few years ago, Chicago writer David Kodeski found two diaries from 1960 and 1961 in a resale shop. The diaries' author, a single, working woman who lived on the city's South Side, wrote meticulously about her everyday life: how she flirted with her co-workers, fought with her Dad, shopped for things she didn't need, and searched for happiness as she worried about her weight and hairdo."

Nora's featured reading appears on the Feb 28th edition of the podcast. You can check out the podcast here.

ON EDIT: Due to some health issues with Mr. Kodeski, the entry read by Nora was posted on March 2. Be sure to check out the podcast!
