TRANSOM.org presented a public listening event April 3, at the Community Hall in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.  The house was packed, standing room only, with a lively question and answer session following the program.

Jay Allison introduced the evening’s special guest, co-producer Andrew Forsthoefel, who set out at age 23 to walk across America, east to west, 4000 miles, with a sign on him that said, “Walking to Listen.”

This hour-long documentary for public radio, co-produced with Jay Allison and TRANSOM.org, tracks his epic journey.

It’s a coming of age story, and a portrait of this country – big-hearted, wild, innocent, and wise.
