Read Tavia Gilbert’s interview on The Reading Date

In celebration of Audiobook Month in June, The Reading Date blog recently posted a wonderful interview with Tavia, in which the award-winning narrator was asked,  What’s coming up for you? Any upcoming audiobook releases you’re particularly jazzed about?

NewComingSoonAdwithBorderTavia replied: THE MIDWIFE, by Jolina Petersheim, has just released. She’s a young, heart-felt, unusual novelist, and one to watch (or listen for)! Daryl Gregory’s AFTERPARTY and Alena Graedon’s THE WORD EXCHANGE are both really great, futuristic, cautionary tales, though very different. I loved narrating FIREBALL, the story of Carole Lombard’s incredible life and untimely death.  And I’m performing a wonderful YA novel, MAGGIE VAULTS OVER THE MOON this summer…” (Emphasis added)

And the crowd goes wild! Continue reading
