Adventures Abound

Adventures Abound

Read More Our final week of the 2018 SYNC season brings a couple of special audiobook treats. Both are likely to surprise you and offer good reminders that, when we’re open to making discoveries, both adventure and insight are going to follow.
Juneteenth Listening

Juneteenth Listening

Read More The Juneteenth holiday is just the right time for the pair of audiobooks we offer this week. The last day to download the pair is Juneteenth itself, so you have seven days to be sure you have them, and even have time to get some listening done to give the date more meaning in your own life. The occasion of Juneteenth, dating from 1865, is a good time to celebrate both freedom and equal rights.

Changes

Changes

Running Scared

Running Scared

Read More For Week 3 of SYNC 2018, we’re offering a pair of audiobooks in which boys are running for their lives. Some teen listeners will identify with one or another of these young people while others, through listening, can discover empathy for circumstances in which they have never found themselves.
Venturing Abroad

Venturing Abroad

Read More Welcome to Week 2 of our 2018 SYNC season! This week’s pair of audiobooks includes a nonfiction and author-narrated book that will take you places you might find beyond imagination, and a novel, also performed by the author, about which we’re sure you’ve heard friends enthusing.
Stories with Histories

Stories with Histories

Read More Week 1 of our 2018 season is here! Both titles of our first week’s audiobook pair offer fiction rooted in history with which teens are familiar and arrive with author and narrator names many will recognize. What better way to introduce the new season?
