StoryCorps Chicago: ‘Have An Interest And A Concern Beyond Yourself’

Sister Carol Fox is 83 years old, a Dominican nun who lives on her own in suburban Chicago. A few months ago, Lenore Fox Monti asked her aunt to record a remote interview for StoryCorps. Sister Carol introduced Lenore’s parents to each other. Lenore started the interview by asking Sister Carol to explain how she had fixed Lenore’s parents up.
