Odyssey Award-winning Team Scowler #audiomonth #alaac14

What does it take to strike Odyssey gold twice? I was fortunate to interview the core group behind TWO Odyssey Award-winnersDaniel Kraus, author of both 2014 Odyssey winner Scowler and 2012 Odyssey winner Rotters, Listening Library’s Executive Acquisitions Editor Rebecca Waugh, plus narrator Kirby Heyborne and producer/director Kelly Gildea, the duo who translated both of Kraus’ works into hauntingly horrific soundscapes. Read my whole interview here: http://www.booklistonline.com/Odyssey-Interview-Team-Scowler-Mary-Burkey/pid=6666805

If you are in Las Vegas for the ALA Annual Conference be sure to attend the Odyssey Award Celebration tomorrow, Monday June 30, 2014 – 3:30pm to 5:30pm, Las Vegas Convention Center, room N256. If you’re at home, watch the video below to get a taste of this terrifying title. So deliciously creepy!

    Wow….I’m listening to Scowler right now. This is a must listen for anyone who enjoyed Rotters. Great interview. I also recently discovered that Kirby is the narrator for a new middle grade book, Mouseheart by Lisa Fiedler.
