The world through someone else’s eyes

As one of the hosts of NPR’s All Things Considered, Ari Shapiro has traveled the world to hear people’s stories. His first book, The Best Strangers in the World, shares his personal and professional journey as an intern at NPR, a full-time journalist, and his experiences as a gay man navigating the landscape of political divisions in the United States.  

The Power of the Written Word

When Shapiro interviews authors, he makes a point of reading their book from cover to cover. What began as a gesture of respect for the authors’ time and effort became vital perspective. Interviewing authors has given Shapiro insights into global issues like climate change and social justice far beyond what he could glean from an interview with an academic or a lawmaker.
