Celebrating Women's History with Narrators Tavia Gilbert and Suzanne Toren

Celebrated audiobook narrators Suzanne Toren and Tavia Gilbert join us for a bonus episode to share their experiences narrating a wide range of history written by and about women. From biographies and memoirs to audiobooks that focus on a pivotal moment in women’s history—like finally getting the right to vote—Suzanne and Tavia talk about the emotional journeys they have taken with these books and the skills needed to bring them to life.

Celebrating Women’s History Month, our conversation covers Suzanne’s thoughts on narrating in the first person—as a person in history, and how that differs from a narration of history. Tavia discusses bringing truth and memory to her narration of memoirs, and her use of emotional channeling.
