It’s that time again! This week, avid readers and members of the publishing world flock to New York City for one of the busiest weeks in books. One of the highlights of the weekend is the Audies Gala and Award presentation. The Audie Awards are given annually by the Audio Publishers Association for excellence in audiobook production and narration.
We at Listen Up are so proud of Casey Holloway, who is nominated for her performance in Pure, by Julianna Baggott, along with narrators Kristine Hvam, Joshua Swanson, and Kevin T. Collins. Pure is nominated for Best Science Fiction Audiobook.
Our CEO, Chris Fogg, says, “Casey’s portrayal of the character Lyda is spot on. Her energy and personality shine through the narrative. It was a fun audiobook to work on and listen to.” You can hear Casey reprise her role of Lyda in Pure’s recently released sequel, Fuse.
The Audies are a part of the Audio Publishers Association Conference, which is held annually in conjunction with BookExpo America. APAC is the premier event in the audiobook industry, which offers networking opportunities and discussion of industry trends. The Audio Publishers Association promotes awareness of the audiobook industry and encourages high production standards, while promoting activities that accelerate audiobook industry growth. BookExpo America is the leading book industry event in North America and offers publishers and authors a chance to share new books and trends with one another and with consumers.
