Oprah is talking about it. So is TIME magazine and The New York Times. And you know everyone at the Thanksgiving table will be talking about it. Make sure you are in on the discussion of Jonathan Franzen's new novel by the time the cranberry sauce is passed around by posting about our Freedom Listening Club: Macmillan Audio’s month-long online audio book discussion, launching November 1 on their Facebook page.
With about 600 pages in the print edition, the Freedom audio book allows listeners to absorb Franzen’s literary feat wherever and whenever they want: in the car, at the gym, around the house, or while at work. Read by esteemed narrator David LeDoux, the audio edition of Freedom has received outstanding praise, mirroring the acclaim for the hardcover. Naming Freedom an “Earphones Award Winner,” AudioFile magazine describes the audio book as “masterful” and one that “demonstrates the power of both the written and spoken word.” BookPage recently named Freedom their “Audio of the Month” for November, and Eric Alterman of The Nation called it “perhaps the best read audio book I've ever heard.”
Macmillan Audio Books already has general information, an audio excerpt, and main talking points up on the discussion tab of their Facebook page, but starting November 1 they will get the dialog rolling and delve into the compelling plot and cast of characters, David LeDoux’s narration, and the listening experience as a whole. Throughout the month of November, they’ll post new thoughts and questions while answering the thoughts and questions of those participating. Producer Paul Ruben will also stop by to answer listeners’ questions, as well as other surprise guests! As an added bonus at the end of the Listening Club, they will pick 5 participants at random to win any Macmillan Audio audio book of their choice.
Be sure and watch for this FREEDOM audio book symbol in my right column to click on all through November to get to the club for the activities and your chance to win! Good Luck!
