All Things Considered hangs out with Josh: Check it out here.
And should any NPR listeners find their way here as a result, welcome to the site, there is more about the project here. The Russian Figure + Story By Doug Dorst mentioned in the piece is here. (More about Dorst, author of the 2009 novel Alive In Necropolis, here.) We’re currently in Volume 2 of the project, and proceeds from this batch of 50 Significant Object auctions go to 826 National, a nonprofit that tutors youth in creative and expository writing. Get yourself an object and help a good cause, here. We’ll be posting new stories and objects every weekday (with some holiday exceptions), and you can follow along on this site, via email, on Facebook, or on Twitter.
