The Audiobook Publisher’s Association Conference in New York is always a very pleasant gathering of friends, colleagues, and new members of the audiobook community. The 2012 conference was particularly memorable.
It was an honor to have been asked to speak about my work as a narrator and a producer in a conversations facilitated by the inestimable, elegant, generous producer John McElroy. Other panelists included my good friend Dan Zitt, Director of Audio Production at Random House, and designer and social media expert Chris Carvey.
And our great audiobook advocate and fan, Adam Boretz of Publisher’s Weekly, very kindly reported on the other delight of the day: live performances by audiobook narrators. My dear Johnny Heller, MC extraordinaire, invited me to perform, along with Davina Porter, Hillary Huber, Dion Graham, Simon Vance, Karen White, Simon Prebble, Anne Flosnik, Robin Miles, and Robert Fass.
A lovely time was had by all, as evidenced by these photos from Johnny’s far better half, the wonderful photographer and narrator Jo Anna Perrin. Don’t Dion and I look happy?
