Sarah Vowell

Summer host Amanda Uhle talks with historian, author, journalist, essayist, and actress Sarah Vowell. Vowell has written seven nonfiction books on American history and culture, was a contributing editor to This American Life  from 1996 to 2008, and was the voice of Violet Parr in the animated film The Incredibles and its sequel.

We talk about what it means to be an American historian in 2019, researching nonfiction with primary sources, and infusing memoir and personal experience into the process of telling others’ stories.

This conversation was taped live-on-stage at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor on April 4, 2019 for Penny Stamps Speaker Series.
