We’re excited to share the news that the American Booksellers Association has announced this year’s Indies Choice Book Award finalists, and three of our titles are in the running for Audiobook of the Year!
Discover why each of these audiobooks need to be a part of your collections for patrons to enjoy:
“Narrator Julia Whelan’s performance is outstanding…Whelan conducts a master class in the fear, dread, and self-doubt wrought by domestic violence as Westover recounts her older brother’s terrorizing all while spewing religious righteousness.” —AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner
“Few narrators can match Julia Whelan for the ease with which she draws listeners into a story…Her performance on Tara Westover’s beautiful and surprising memoir, Educated, continues this streak of near-perfect performances.” —Chicago Tribune
“An ensemble cast is an effective vehicle for a novel about contemporary Native Americans living in Oakland, California…Listeners will enjoy the individual stories as they unfold and slowly intertwine.” —AudioFile
“Bravura… There There has so much jangling energy and brings so much news from a distinct corner of American life that it’s a revelation… its appearance marks the passing of a generational baton.” —Dwight Garner, The New York Times
“Luke Daniels must juggle multiple balls as he narrates this work: a large cast of vastly different creatures engaging in various battles, adventures, and near-death scrapes. He meets the challenges eloquently with spirited characterizations and nimble pacing.” —AudioFile
“A rollicking fantasy adventure that upends numerous genre tropes in audacious style…a laugh-out-loud-funny fusion of Monty Python–esque humor and whimsy à la Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.” —Kirkus Reviews
