On the Same Page to Kickoff Sept. 12th at Bookmarks Festival
Join us at the annual Bookmarks Festival of Books as we kickoff On the Same Page for 2015. There will be over 40 regionally, nationally, and internationally known authors scheduled to appear, authors like Pat Conroy (The Prince of Tides), Fred Chappell (I Am One of You Forever), Sandra Brown (Friction), and more. There will also be exhibitors, readings, book signings, and food trucks providing great food.
Make sure to attend a special panel discussion from 11 am to 11:45 am in the Hanesbrand Theater between audiobook narrator Scott Brick and UNCSA professor Dale M. Pollock that will be sponsored by the Forsyth County Public Library.
Mr. Brick has worked on nearly 700 audiobooks, including titles by authors such as Nelson DeMille, Janet Evanovich, Clive Cussler, Brad Meltzer, and David Baldacci. To date, he has won over 50 Earphone Awards, two Audie Awards, and a Grammy nomination. Most important of all, he's the narrator of this year's On the Same Page featured title, In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick. Mr. Brick and Mr. Pollock will discuss In the Heart of the Sea in particular and the art of audiobooks in general.
