Our premier week of the 2020 SYNC season brings participants a pair of award winning audiobooks that have proven teen appeal. Thanks to Recorded Books and HarperAudio for getting us off to such a strong start.
This week we’ve paired fiction and nonfiction, both of which will appeal to anyone who is curious about what happens out of view. Thank you to Candlewick on Brilliance and to Tantor Audio for these contributions to SYNC.
For Week 3 of SYNC 2018, we’re offering a pair of audiobooks in which boys are running for their lives. Some teen listeners will identify with one or another of these young people while others, through listening, can discover empathy for circumstances in which they have never found themselves.
Welcome to Week 2 of our 2018 SYNC season! This week’s pair of audiobooks includes a nonfiction and author-narrated book that will take you places you might find beyond imagination, and a novel, also performed by the author, about which we’re sure you’ve heard friends enthusing.
We have LOTS of news this week so hang on to your tea cup and get ready for AudiobookSYNC 2018!
