Go behind the scenes of audiobook production with George Guidall, a superstar of audiobook narration who has recorded over 900 unabridged novels and is the recipient of two Audie Awards for excellence in audiobook narration (the industry’s equivalent of the Oscars). His 40-year acting career includes starring roles on Broadway, an Obie award for best performance Off-Broadway, and frequent television appearances. This year, he will receive a Special Achievement Award from the Audio Publishers Association in honor of his distinguished career.
Guidall will present “The Art and Artifice of Audiobook Narration,” offering a glimpse behind the scenes of audiobook production. With signature humor and wit, he will share personal stories, anecdotes and out-takes, describing the subtleties of an art form that speaks to a primal human need for narrative. He will also perform a dramatic reading from Jack London’s The Call of the Wild.
