Among locations featured in this year's audiobook selections are the United States, Australia, Russia, Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Afghanistan. There are stories set in Ohio, Delaware, Utah, California, Florida, Connecticut, New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, Arkansas, Tennessee, and less specific places in North America. The cities of Seattle and Washington, DC, Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), Manhattan, and Perth, Australia, all are on our itinerary.
There are imagined places as well, and places that may appear larger, rather than smaller, in listening than if we considered them with the familiar eyes of an inhabitant.
If you're planning programs featuring one or another of the audiobooks teens can download and keep for free, you might want to check for those featuring locations near you....or too far away to visit in person. You've got both Northern and Southern Hemispheres, Eastern and Western to choose among. Oh, heck, make it a world tour!
