During a recent visit to our Penguin Random House Audio studios in NYC, Newbery-winning author Rebecca Stead shared her love for WHEN FRIENDSHIP FOLLOWED ME HOME written and read by Paul Griffin, a book she says teaches us that “if we can open our hearts to one another…lives can change in big and wonderful ways.” Listen to Rebecca explain more about “the power of love” in this short interview excerpt:
WHEN FRIENDSHIP FOLLOWED ME HOME is also a Summer 2016 Kids’ Indie Next Pick! Book and audiobook available on June 7th 2016 from Dial Books and Listening Library.
When chatting with the EarlyWord audience about recording the audiobook, Paul said:
“The audiobook was a gift—to get to read it. I learned so much about reading. You think you know what it sounds like when you read it aloud to your dogs, but reading it with an amazing director? He helped me find all these things I didn’t see.”
