APA Audiobook of the Year ~ June Is Audiobook Month Giveaway

Cover of MandelaIt 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.

This June Is Audiobook Month giveaway is sponsored by Audiobook Community. If you are an audiobook lover and haven’t already liked their Facebook page or followed them on Twitter, you should!

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!

    I love history audio. I have an excellent recording of MLK, Jr.’s speeches, so I would say that so far, that is my favorite of historical recordings.

      The last book that I read that was similar to this was The Butler by Wil Haygood. The audiobook was also short and had several view points from historical figures. It was pretty interesting and definitely made me interested in seeking out histories/historical fictions that cover the same sort of thing.
