He is the author/editor of numerous books that grew out of his public radio documentary work, including three StoryCorps books: Listening Is an Act of Love, Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps, and All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps — all New York Times bestsellers.

The evening begins at  7:30 p.m. in the Schuster Center lobby with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Isay’s presentation on the power of listening and the history of StoryCorps begins at 8 p.m. in the Mathile Theatre, followed by dessert and a book signing.
