It seems fitting to me, as APA’s Audiobook Blogger of the Year, that I have been offered the opportunity to giveaway a copy of the 2015 APA Audiobook of the Year, Mandela: An Audio History. This audiobook, published by Highbridge Audio and narrated by Nelson Mandela, Desmund Tutu, and Joe Richman, is just a little over an hour long, but consists of more than 50 first person interviews and a recording from the trial that ultimately sentenced Nelson Mandela to a life in prison. I have not yet listened to this audio history, but it must be fascinating. I was a freshman in college at the time of Mandela’s release from prison in 1990 and I have vivid memories of the news coverage from that time. Together with the fall of the Berlin Wall, it felt like the world was changing.
If you’re a US resident, leave a comment here about your favorite historical recordings by Thursday, June 25th at 11:59PM EST. I’ll use random.org to select the winner and will make the announcement in my post on Friday. Good luck!
