Audies Gala, New York Historical Society, June 5, 2012, Photos

BookExpo America 2012: 

Audies Gala and Awards Presentation 

Below are my photos of the Audie Awards Gala for audiobooks, on June 5, 2012, at the New York Historical Society, New York, NY.   

This year I had the honor of being an Audie Award Judge, helping to select the Audiobook of the Year.The winner of the Audiobook of the Year was Bossypants by Tina Fey. The other finalists were American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition by Neil Gaiman, read by Dennis Boutsikaris, Daniel Oreskes, Ron McLarty, Sarah Jones and a full cast; Go the F*** to Sleep by Adam Mansbach, read by Samuel L. Jackson; and Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, read by Dylan Baker.

As a judge, I received an invitation to this elegant soiree and a nice white ribbon to wear to signify that I was a judge.  

I also came to appreciate the pleasure of the theater, music and poetry that audio brings to books. What a wonderful experience it has been to become a part of the audiobook world.

Among my photos below, pictured first is Adam Boretz of Publishers Weekly who was covering the event for Publishers Weekly.
