St. Mary's/Calvert: Creative Nonfiction and the Audio Mosaic

November 28, 2020
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

St. Mary's & Calvert Counties Chapter Zoom Meeting

Program: In this immersive presentation we will take an in-depth look at the world that Aaron Henkin creates in his award-winning documentary series Out of the Blocks. In each episode of Out of the Blocks, Aaron makes it his mission to meet and interview everybody on a city block. Aaron will talk about his approach to creative non-fiction, which blends interviews, music, and environmental soundscapes into an audio mosaic of a place at a moment in time.

Presenter: Aaron creates and produces original radio programs and podcasts for WYPR. His current project is the neighborhood documentary series, Out of the Blocks, which earned the 2018 national Edward R Murrow Award. His past work includes the long-running weekly cultural program, The Signal, and the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings series, Tapestry of the Times. Aaron's stories have aired nationally on NPR's Morning Edition, All Things Considered, PRI’s Studio 360, & The World.
