Oasis Audio has provided us all with DIVINE COLLISION: AN AFRICAN BOY, AN AMERICAN LAWYER, AND THEIR REMARKABLE BATTLE FOR FREEDOM, written by Jim Gash, the lawyer noted in the title, and narrated by Brandon Batchelar. This memoir takes listeners to Uganda and a spectacular rescue from prison.
Penguin Random House Audio's publication in audiobook of Cristina Henriquez's BOOK OF UNKNOWN AMERICANS is provided with a full cast performance by Yareli Arizmendi, Christine Avila, Jesse Corti, Gustavo Res, Ozzie Rodriguez, and Gabriel Romero. This contemporary adult novel received lots of attention two years ago from the Alex Awards committee and deserves a wide listenership as it unfolds the very realistic and evocative story of what it can be like to be a documented immigrant in the US today.
In order to help expand the power of this AudiobookSYNC title, we're putting together a discussion guide and suggest you consider planning a teen or even community-wide discussion in the weeks following Henriquez's title availability, which is August 4 - 10. We're putting together one or two other discussion guides for titles coming this summer as well. These will be added to the AudiobookSYNC Toolkit as they become available.
