It’s January, the depths of winter. That means just four months until “summer” returns with SYNC’s 11th season of free audiobooks! We’re delighted to have well known publishers returning as well as some who join us for the first time.
We make assumptions about other people in our lives all the time—and yet, we also know that assumptions others make about us can be way off base. This week’s pair of audiobooks explore just such situations and let listeners consider both sides of the assumption trap.
Friends and family are important people in all our lives. Sometimes, however, instead of looking to others for support and rescue we need to get through hard times on our own. This week’s pair of audiobooks from Penguin Random House Audio/Listening Library shows how some fictional teens face such events.

We’re welcoming Penguin Random House Audio/Listening Library’s return this summer and their generous provision of four titles for teen ear-reading. Each of them serves a portion of contemporary teen life in America, in realistic stories and authentic voices.
Week 2 of AudiobookSYNC 2017 features a pair of audiobooks that take us into possibilities for the future of humanity. Both have been popular in audio since they first became available, and every new listener can quickly understand why.

While it’s comforting to believe we know what is happening around us, there are times when we really aren’t aware of how others are managing what we know about our shared America. In our penultimate week, we’re happy to be able to share two award-winning titles that give listeners opportunities to discover American life and lives in new ways.
