"Tell me a story."

Emergent Voices presents 13 stories to satisfy the yearning no one outgrows. Selected by Robert Weaver from CBC Canadian Literary Awards winners, these stories helped to launch the careers of some of Canada's best-known authors. Recent stories are abridged for the 15-minute Between the Covers program, whereas earlier stories vary in length up to the full 28 minutes of Anthology.

Among the stories in Emergent Voices are "Satya," by Shauna Singh Baldwin, narrated by the author herself, a former PBS radio host; "The Passions of Lalla," by Michael Ondaatje, narrated by Henry Kromer; and "Mrs. Putnam at the Planetarium," by Janice Kulyk Keefer narrated by Nonnie Griffin.
