History in Story

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, December 7, 2017


We're so pleased to have both Scholastic Audio and narrator Dion Graham returning this coming summer. Thank you for continuing to support SYNC!


The first of the Scholastic Audio additions to our 2018 program is MY NAME IS NOT FRIDAY, the Earphones Award winning performance of John Walter's well-received historical novel. This is the kind of historical fiction that allows readers and listeners to gain insight on the who and why as well as the what and how of history.

Here's an example of what reviewers have said about the book that is:

...reminiscent of such great literature as Uncle Tom’s Cabin and Huckleberry Finn, and yet a book that feels contemporary in writing style. [It] ransports the reader to a different time and place; is immersive and evocative, rich and powerful.


With master of voices and empathetic character evocation Dion Graham as narrator, this reading will make the AudiobookSYNC selection valuable to both veteran and beginning listeners. Thank you, Scholastic, for sharing this treasure with teens during SYNC 2018!
