Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Channie Waites

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

When a young Zora Neale Hurston stands in the schoolyard to spin a tale about the "gator man" she saw, the listener, too, is riveted. To create an audio production about a girl whose tales are so tall that to call her a fibber is a compliment and a town so filled with intriguing characters that one must eavesdrop at every opportunity, one needs a narrator ready to delight in every word. The character Ivory is said to have had honey poured straight into his voice. Narrator Channie Waites’s voice could be described with equal reverence as she brings the all-black community of Eatonville, Florida, to life. K.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2011 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
