FIGHTING WORDS brings Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, the author of 2016 Odyssey Award Winner The War That Saved My Life read by Jayne Entwistle, together with two-time Odyssey-winning narrator, Bahni Turpin (The True Meaning of Smekday , The Hate U Give ).
“Turpin captures complicated emotions…This audiobook would serve well to open #MeToo conversations. Bradley reads her author’s note, which offers hope and resources.”—AudioFile Earphones Award
National Book Award Finalist, THE WAY BACK, reunites author Gavriel Savit and narrator Allan Corduner who won the 2017 Odyssey Award for Anna and the Swallow Man. You can revisit our interview with Corduner about that award-winning production here.
