Andy Whitman Interviews Mavis Staples

Mavis Staples’ You Are Not Alone was far and away the finest gospel album I heard in 2010. Have you heard it yet? It’s so full of joy, warmth, encouragement, and soul.

My friend Andy Whitman was blessed with an opportunity to interview her, and he turned that opportunity into an article that’s well worth your time.

In case you missed it, I included Staples’ album on my Favorite Recordings of 2010 list.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
