Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lisa Renee Pitts

Biography & Memoir • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

The four audiobooks in this series celebrate the lives of noteworthy female politicians. This one focuses on the life and political career of U.S. Representative Maxine Waters. From her humble beginnings in St. Louis, Missouri, where she was one of 13 children raised by a single mother, to her political career spanning more than 40 years, Representative Waters has never been one to back down from a challenge. Lisa Pitts's narration is a treat. Her engaging performance is lively and conversational, and has an aura of professional storytelling. Once can easily imagine Pitts to be a raconteuse presenting this work for a live audience. Engaging and educational, this biographical production will appeal to both teenage and adult audiences. Listeners will not wish to reclaim their time. A.L.S.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
