We are delighted to announce the appearance of Recorded Books narrator George Guidall at the Dix Hills building on Thursday, April 15, at 7 pm. George will take us behind the scenes of an audiobook production, and share personal stories, anecdotes, and out-takes.
George has recorded over 900 unabridged novels, bringing a consistent artistry to his readings and delighting listeners for over 20 years. His narrations of classics such as Crime and Punishment and The Iliad as well as best sellers like Snow Falling on Cedars and Lillian Jackson Braun’s Cat Who … series have set a standard for excellence recognized throughout the audiobook industry. His recordings have garnered uniformly excellent reviews from Audiofile, Library Journal, Publisher’s Weekly, and a variety of national newspapers and magazines. Guidall received an Audie Award (the industry’s equivalent to an Oscar) for best unabridged narration of a novel for his recording of John Irving’s A Widow For One Year, an honor he captured again for his rendition of Wally Lamb’s I Know This Much Is True. He’s been nominated for best narration for David Robbins’ War Of The Rats, Ken Follet’s Code to Zero, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and his unabridged narration of Cervantes’ classic, Don Quixote. Acclaimed as one of the original “Golden Voices” in Audiofile magazine, he holds the record for the most “Earphone” awards (over 70) given by the magazine to any narrator for excellence in narration.
We hope to see you there!
