Award-winning actor Cynthia Erivo joins us to discuss narrating the Audible Original Wild Swan: A Story of Florence Nightingale, written by Patti Callahan, which follows the founder of modern nursing during a formative early period of her life. She is joined by Audible's vice president of urban innovation, Aisha Glover.
Note from Patti:

As she said "There has never been a more important time to celebrate nurses and front line workers."
