Listening Is Reading: An Audiobook Celebration
Tuesday, February 16 | 7:00 pm
Join Bookmarks as we proclaim that “Listening Is Reading”. Learn about audiobooks and the independent audiobook model from Libro.fm, a social purpose corporation that makes it possible to buy audiobooks through local bookstores. We will also be joined by Ladee Hubbard, author of The Rib King (our January Signed First Editions Club title), who will be in conversation with the narrators of her audiobook, Korey Jackson and Adenrele Ojo. In The Rib King, Hubbard deconstructs painful African American stereotypes and offers a fresh and searing critique on race, class, privilege, ambition, exploitation, and the seeds of rage in America in this intricately woven and masterfully executed historical novel, set in early the twentieth century that centers around the black servants of a down-on-its heels upper-class white family.
