April interviewed a cross-section of the Brentwood Library community and made short stories and experimental soundscapes with the recordings. Using the stories and tracks as inspiration, Leah made prints and collages with library patrons, which were compiled into an art book that lives in the library. A digital version of the book and recordings can also be found on a website.
