Have you heard? The American Library Association’s Odyssey Award committee has named two Listening Library titles as 2022 Odyssey Honors, recognizing excellence in children’s and young adult audiobooks: PERFECTLY PARVIN by Olivia Abtahi, narrated by Mitra Jouhari and EMMANUEL’S DREAM: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah by Laurie Ann Thompson, read by Adjoa Andoh! Don’t miss your chance to share these standout productions with your patrons via your digital audiobook collections!
The Odyssey Committee says: “Mitra Jouhari is an exceptional narrator, capturing Parvin’s comical, awkward energy. Jouhari delivers authentic Farsi phrases and proper pronunciation while also delighting listeners with Parvin’s perfectly hilarious thoughts.”
