It happened on a Monday. A hot June day in sunny Anaheim, California—the final day of another successful ALA Annual Conference. The immensely enjoyable 2012 Odyssey Award Ceremony was nearing its conclusion. The crowd was smiling, listening with eager ears (it was a room full of audiobook-lovers after all.) There was just one narrator left to speak: Kirby Heyborne, narrator of the Odyssey Award-winner ROTTERS. We expected him to be funny; we expected him to be charming…but we didn’t expect this. Watch how Kirby won the heart of every librarian in the room…and possibly everywhere (thanks to this video).
We are so excited to see Kirby accept an Odyssey Award again this year for SCOWLER.
