Audiobooks were featured on NPR’s Morning Edition as part of the Open Mic series today – an awesome program¬† featuring two of the best author / narrators, Neil Gaiman and David Serdaris, both winners of the Audio Publishers Association’s Audie Award.¬† Also part of the program are host Renee Montagne; professional narrator Martin Jarvis, who narrates the audiobook of Gaiman and Terry Pratchet’s Good Omens; audiobook director Rick Harris and Audible.com’s Don Katz. Listen in to the whole seven-minute program right here , or read the transcript here. A lovely homage to the power of the spoken word.
