Moving Stories was recently awarded the 2012 Oral History Association Book Award for international themes, which was presented at the US OHA annual conference in Cleveland Ohio in October. The citation includes the following: “The committee members were tremendously impressed by the ability of your work to find a good balance between humanizing stories within a socio-historical context and providing significant analysis of different forms of storytelling through personal correspondence, the use of photographs, and individual oral histories”
