During this Banned Books Week, challenge yourself to listen to a book you've already read with your eyes and consider how hearing the same narrative alters how you feel--and maybe how you think--about what the author had to communicate. Get outside the voice in your head to consider other voices that may be more accurately attuned to the author's own expressive capacity and concerns.
Maybe start with any of the Top 10 Challenged titles on this year's Banned Books Week list. Or pick up a well-reviewed audiobook AudioFile Magazine is featuring on Twitter during #HispanicHeritageMonth. Or browse the latest copy of AudioFile Magazine for a suggestion. The October/November 2020 issue is online now.
