Awards & Recognition 2014 Audie Awards feat. host Libba Bray

Each year, the Audio Publishers Association (APA) honors the best titles in audiobook publishing at a cocktail and dessert reception and awards ceremony held in conjunction with the Audio Publishers Association Conference (APAC) and Book Expo America (BEA). This year, the big event will be hosted by beloved, bestselling author Libba Bray! A huge audiobook fan (who has even stepped behind the mic as narrator), Libba always takes an active role in her audio productions, and is the perfect hilarious host to guide audiobook fans through a fun evening on Thursday, May 29, 2014. Check her out in a divine “Making of The Diviners” video here and click here for ticket and gala information.
